Homeland of anarchist Passannante, who in 1878 attempted the life of King Umberto I of Savoy, the village dominates the Melandro area from the top of a relief surrounded by greenery. We can see from a distance the silhouettes of the medieval castle with the two towers and of the Mother Church of San Nicola di Bari, which stand out from the rural houses of the village. The latter are densely arranged, leaning against each other, separated by narrow alleys that make the morphology of the place even more intriguing. Worth a visit is the Mem ory Museum (Museo della Memoria) with sections dedicated to the anarchist movement, the history of Fascism and the figure of Giovanni Passannante.
