Castello della Manta- Cuneo

CASTELLO DELLA MANTA- CUNEO

2019 Restoration 

This enchanting 15th-century castle, silhouetted against the majestic Cuneo Alps, is home to some of Italy’s most magnificent frescoes.  Castello della Manta was originally a 13th-century fortress and was transformed into a lavish family home by Valerano, the ruler of the Marquisate of Saluzzo, in the 15th century. Donated to FAI by Elisabetta De Rege in 1985, Castello della Manta is colorful, elegant, historically rich, and brimming with frescoes that tell stories of courtly love, chivalry, and both aristocratic and village life in 15th century Italy.
