The new paleontological museum at Palazzo Michelerio

Do you remember the ocean, the whales and the corals in Asti? It was “just” a few million years ago! The museum dedicated to the sea’s prehistoric giants whose remains were discovered in the vineyards on the hills, is in Corso Alfieri, in Asti.
“It’s the fascinating story of the time when the landscape around Asti, between 5 and 2 million years ago, wasn’t made of hills and vineyards, but covered by the sea. Whales, dolphins and shells that once lived in the sea, recently have found a new home in the city centre, in the paleontological museum at Palazzo Michelerio, and now have been given even more space, beneath the brick volts of the historic building in Corso Alfieri”.

Following years of refurbishment, Palazzo Alfieri, the house of Vittorio Alfieri, in Corso Alfieri in Asti, finally has reopened.
The house where Vittorio Alfieri was born, at number 375 of Corso Alfieri, in Asti, was inaugurated on the anniversary of his birth (16 January 1749).
The rooms and museum exhibits, set up with scientific precision, allow visitors to appreciate the atmosphere of the poet’s house and learn more about his life and works.
The “Centro di Studi Alfieriani” Foundation, following its return to Palazzo Alfieri eighty years after the creation of the National Centre, continues its work to protect, research and divulge the moral heritage of one of Italy’s most illustrious citizens.
