The history of the Castle of Montecavallo

Il Castle of Montecavallo it was built by Filiberto Avogadro around the 1830, in style neogothic, on the remains of a family stronghold from the 1200.

Il romanticismo led to identify inmedieval architecture the symbol of the history and tradition of the various European countries. One of the masterpieces of the neogothic was certainly the Parliament of London, built in the same period of Montecavallo. In Italy the neogothic did not spread much due to a lack of tradition of stylistic reference.

Filiberto Avogadro he therefore found himself faced with a modern, avant-garde style, and being a man of very open ideas he decided to adopt it to build his residence.

The project was entrusted to thearchitect Dupuy who later also designed part of the old Hospital of the sick of Biella.
