Description of experience
The BIG BENCH COMMUNITY PROJECT involves the out-of-scale installation of huge benches and is a non-profit initiative promoted by the American designer Chris Bangle together with his wife Catherine.
We will also reach an extraordinary panoramic point overlooking the mythical castle of Casaleggio Boiro, one of the most evocative manors of Monferrato, chosen in the 60s as a television set to reproduce the castle of the Unnamed of “The Betrothed”. The beautiful view from the castle will be the backdrop while we tell you the secrets of the castle, such as revealing the reasons that led to its construction, the struggles and smuggling that saw the castle as its protagonist. We will discover extraordinary legends such as that of Aleramo, the first mythical Marquis of Monferrato, whose most remote representation is still carved in a stone architrave inside the ancient manor.
