“Welcome, visitors, to the inside of my walls.
When I was born my land was still shaking with medieval wars, how many adventures have I experienced since the 13th century!
I was a bell tower, then they’ve dressed me up as a theater, I’ve hosted Napoleonic invaders and aristocratic families, a thousand changes have marked me.
But now, I’m entrusted with one of the most flattering tasks of my long career.
I keep inside me the food and wine excellence of our UNESCO territory, looking after all the treasures that nature has given to my region, revised into precious jewel by the skilled hands of winemaker(vintner, enologists) and producers.
My duty is to show to you all these treasures and to tell you their history as in a small goodies and delights museum.
In this little journey you will discover what my region really has to offer.
While you are walking among the showcases, I’ll stay up here, as in past centuries, the tallest of the towers, watching over the city and its inhabitants and admiring the sun go down on my beautiful Asti.”
