A castle immersed in greenery that promotes art and culture
On the outskirts of Turin, located in a large historical park between the hills of Pinerolo and the majestic Monviso mountain, stands Miradolo Castle. Once an ancient aristocratic residence, today it serves a new purpose as a cultural hub, hosting temporary exhibitions, concerts, shows, and educational and training sessions. Renovated in 1866 in the neo-Gothic style that was prevalent at the time, Miradolo Castle has long been linked to the figure of Maria Elisabetta Ferrero della Marmora. It was she who requested the construction of the neo-Gothic Greenhouse and the Round Tower, which are symbols of the castle today, and who converted the Italian-style garden into the 6-hectare park surrounding the main building, which alternates between meadows and rich woods.
Since 2007, Miradolo Castle has been restored to its former glory and has become a reference point for artistic and cultural events in the province of Turin. Its calendar is jam-packed with activities, ranging from concerts to exhibitions and displays hosted inside the castle. The vast park has also been transformed into a permanent collection that helps to promote the culture of greenery and a new awareness of environmental issues.
