THE PIOVERA CASTLE

The Castle, built on medieval pre-existence in 1300, became a powerful fortress with the Visconti family of Milan. Property of the Balbi family of Genoa since the seventeenth century it has been transformed into a residence by the same at the end of 1800. Today it is property of Count Niccolò Calvi di Bergolo who opened it to the public, since 1972, with his art workshops, guided tours within the castle and educational farm.

Amongst its towers, its merlons, moats and stables, this period residence hosts events of all kinds: weddings, historical re-enactments, gatherings, concerts, art exhibitions, events for the whole family. The Castle opening hours, from April to October, are available on the visits calendar or by reservation.

ABOUT US

Count Niccolò Calvi di Bergolo, his wife Annamaria and his son Alessandro manage the castle since 1967, when the Count bought it from his cousins Doria-Odescalchi, last heirs of the Balbi family.

The commitment of the Count and his family is to promote the ancient and noble significance of the Piovera Castle, which is our culture heritage.

  • What we do

    For the past 50 years, the family has been working in the estate with commitment and ideas, supported by a group of volunteers who helps them in the realization of the events.

  • How we do it

    The Castle is personally managed by the Calvi di Bergolo family. Unlike other castles, the Balbi Castle in Piovera preserves all its history: both the external façade, apparently “delabrée”, and the interiors, are a living testimony of the passing of time (this is a case of conservative restoration, which allows the visitors to see different styles and layers of plaster on the same façade to demonstrate the different historical periods). The guided tours are carried out directly by the owner with the help of expert guides.

    The motto is “In what we do we put the heart”.

    In the Castle you always breathe a family air.

  • Our mission

    Our mission is to make the Castle into a “lighthouse” that enlightens all the cultural and historical realities, close to the Castle, creating a “network”.
