FAQ

  • A journey in the world of wine, product – and producer – of culture. A journey among multimedia and interactive installations and surprising sets.

  • How nature contributes to the creation of a wine. The close link of wine with man, from prehistory to the modern day. Wine in the arts. The history of Barolo.

  • Yes. In five of its six floors.

  • No. The whole building was completely renovated around the end of the XIXth century to host – as wished by the its last owner, the marquise Giulia from Barolo – a College for the youngsters of the area. The modern installations, as a matter of facts, are set in spaces that, when the College closed, were totally empty and occasionally used for exhibitions and cultural activities. The only floor who has not been involved by the XIXth century renovation works is the noble floor and it still hosts the old structure and furnishings. Here the original furniture – kept in the halls – blends with the modern WiMu installations.

  • Yes. The tour includes the piano nobile with the nineteenth-century furniture. That is where the Marquis and Marchioness of Barolo, Carlo Tancredi and Giulia, lived when they came to the castle.

  • François Confino, ingenious author of museums and exhibitions worldwide.

  • You take the tour on your own. Introductory panels present the rooms. If you want further information you can rent an audio guide. At weekends there are sometimes guided tours: information and timetables are available at the ticket office.
