Sale d'Arte Comunali di Alessandria

The Art rooms present a collection of works that share a link with the town of Alessandria, its territory, its people and the historical and cultural moments that have left their mark.
There are several sections:

The first, "Le Stanze di Artù e l'immagine del Medioevo alessandrino”, displays the interesting frescoes dating from the late 14th century, inspired by the famous Breton cycle and come from Cascina Torre in Frugarolo. The route, which from the entrance leads to the frescoes, offers a reconstruction of medieval life in Alessandria through a series of panels that highlight the architectural traces and painters of the town close to its foundation.

The Art rooms host temporary exhibitions during the year (for information refer to the single dedicated events). The exhibitions, "Armonie Sospese" by Asako Hishiki and "Gli abbracci dell'Arte di artisti emergenti", are running until 21 January.

The works by the artist Giovanni Migliara (1785–1837) that illustrate the different themes he dealt with during his career, giving visitors the opportunity to grasp the typical characteristic of 19th century vedute and landscape paintings, are not currently on show to the public.
