Palazzo Gazzelli di Rossana

The Theatrum Sabaudiae print reveals how Palazzo Gazzelli di Rossana is the result of an amalgamation of various pre-existing medieval buildings.
In the eighteenth century, the building was subjected to a renovation that involved the famous architect from Asti, Benedetto Alfieri.
After a period under the Cotti di Ceres Counts, the property passed to the Gazelli family, Counts of Rossana and Lords of San Sebastiano and Selve, in 1840.
The estate is currently located in the heart of the historic center of Asti.

The Frescoes of the Palio

The noble palace, renovated by architect Alfieri, has numerous eighteenth-century furnishings and decorations inside. In particular, inside there are frescoes of great value for the city: Scene del Palazzo di Asti (Scenes of the Palio of Asti).
The pictorial cycle dates back to 1758, the year in which Cotti di Ceres was the owner of the horse that won the edition of the Palio with the Confraternita dell'Annunziata (Confraternity of the Annunciation).
The frescoes represent sixteen scenes. Among the most important, there are the race, the awarding of the winner and thanksgiving with the offer of the palio to Chiesa della Confraternita dell'Annunziata (Church of the Confraternity of the Annunciation).

The Ponte di Lombriasco Tower

The structure of the noble palace incorporates a medieval tower of the thirteenth century: Torre Ponte di Lombriasco.
This is the last testimony of the residence of the Ponte, a noble Guelph family of the thirteenth century. The cut-off structure with an inclined plane has imposing walls that reach a height of 8 meters. The only decorations consist of geometric patterns made through the insertion of metal bricks.
