Stura Valley

The filigree of Campo Ligure, the iron of Masone and the PassaTempo museum of Rossiglione. The Stura Valley is rich in wonders but what is most striking is the territory itself, thanks to its landscape A stone’s throw from the Beigua Natural Regional Park, it is commonly referred to as the “Valle del Latte” (the “Valley of Milk”) given the presence of a number of farms and dairies.

The castle of Campo Ligure also guards its legend and its ghost: the young daughter of an ancient lord who, having had a sad fate and finding no peace, wanders around.

The filigree workshops

In 1884, Maestro Antonio Oliveri opened his very own filigree workshop in his hometown of Campo Ligure. His example was followed by other artisans. Indeed, soon there were thirtythree workshops! Today, you can visit the downtown Filigree Museum, displaying 200 pieces hailing from all over the world. Not only are the shops and museum worth a visit – so is the area itself. Campo Ligure is a stunning village, surmounted by the grand Castello containing a park where concerts are held each summer.

At Masone, in the Civic Museum, you will find an international photography exhibition with photos by Gianni Barengo Gardin, Fulvio Roiter, Franco Fontana, Mario Cresci, Mario de Biasi, Giuliana Traverso, Mario Vidor.

Trekking and pastures

The “Valle del Latte” extends from Campo Ligure to Rossiglione, through Masone until reaching Tiglieto, an enchanting location on the summit of the Ciazze and a great starting point. Cows and horses graze whilst pristine and highly efficient farms welcome vacationers and gourmands alike. It is not difficult to explore on your own, perhaps even planning a sumptuous picnic.

“Festina lente”, or hasten slowly: this is the phrase attributed to the Emperor Augustus by the Latin writer Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus. This is the motto of the Rossiglione Leisure Museum.

A passion for pastimes

There is a figurine of Susanna Tuttapanna, a cartoon character from a beloved TV show called Carosello that aired in the 1960s. Then there are the Lambretta scooters, the earliest Piaggio Vespas, the black and white TVs, the cassette player, the first juke boxes, the typewriters, the tiny vans that ran on pedal power, the Moto Guzzi motorcycles and the Simca 1000 sedans. A truly entertaining and perhaps unique collection that has become the Museo del PassaTempo in Rossiglione
