There are places that know how to unite the charm of their architecture with an important history, made up of large and small events, and Agliè is one of these. Told in the works of Filippo d'Agliè and Guido Gozzano, the village has a clearly recognisable symbol: the Castello Ducale. The building, part of the Canavese castle circuit, dates back to the 12th century and throughout its history was the summer residence of the Savoy family. Looking at it, one immediately notices its precious monumental façade, with its two access ramps, and the splendid Italian and English gardens that surround it, as well as its park, embellished by a beautiful fountain designed by the Collino brothers. A curiosity about this village: one of its hamlets was home to one of the Olivetti factories, where the famous Lettera 22 typewriter was produced.
