The North West Italy region
Visiting Turin is to go on a tour of the city's historical centre taking in the museums and foundations that reconstruct its history and reveal its artistic and cultural treasures. This includes Europe's largest collection of archaeological finds at the Egyptian Museum, or the more recent history of the 'seventh art' brilliantly presented at the National Museum of Cinema, the exceptional treasure of ancient art held in Palazzo Madama, and then of course, Palazzo Reale, the powerhouse behind Italy's very first capital.
Turin is also a vital point of reference for contemporary art: works and installations produced over the last thirty years by internationally famous artists are placed for all to see in the open air or on display at the country's most important Museum of Contemporary Art within the 17th century Castle of Rivoli.
The mainly baroque art of the many places of worship in the town's centre blends with the spirituality to be found therein: the Sanctuary of the Consolata and the Sanctuary of Maria Ausiliatrice are a couple of Turin's best loved churches. Other places that are a must are the Duomo where there will be held the Ostension of the Holy Shroud in the spring, the twin churches in Piazza San Carlo, and the Church of San Lorenzo with its famous dome by Guarini or the Basilica of Superga which, as well as holding the tombs of the Savoy family, also offers a breathtaking view of the city and mountains. Lastly, just a stone's throw from the city centre, palaces, castles and fortresses dominate the hills, plains and mountains of the province of Turin. These are of inestimable value and some of the most outstanding are the Royal Residences, a legacy of exceptional cultural and environmental interest, leading to their denomination as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
The town of San Mauro is located a few kilometers from Turin city center (8 km away ) and is located at the foot of the northern slopes of the hill of Turin, dominated by the Basilica di Superga. A part of the town is on the left side of the Po, the oldest is instead located on the right bank, along the old road that once connected the Porta Praetoria of Turin (located in today's Piazza Castello) and the Roman Industry (the 'current Monteu da Po) with Valenza and Casale Monferrato.
The first written document in which it appears the town of San Mauro returns the name of the Pulchra or Pulcherada Rada (literally "beautiful beach" or "beautiful bay", a name that probably originated by the beauty of the place that was once the bed of the Po and dates back to May 4, 991: it states that Anselm, Marquis of Monferrato, is committed to rebuilding the abbey of Benedictine monks destroyed during an invasion of the Saracens.
Only a few testimonies have come to us with the splendor and power of the ancient Benedictine Abbey of San Mauro: the central apse and the left side of the nave of the parish church , formerly the abbey church, the bell tower and the lower part of the Chapel of the Madonna .
The parish church of Santa Maria is located in the center of the village 's oldest town, in a higher position , just 50 metros far from the house. The nave and the facade is in Baroque style and was restored in 1665 thanks to Abbot commandatario " Petrinus Achemius ." The old building , already revolutionized between the twelfth and fourteenth century, was greatly upset and then present it is very difficult to try to reconstruct their original forms . It is likely that the building has been built between the late tenth and early eleventh century. Characterize the deep mullioned windows , originally blind , divided by pilasters , each topped by three blind niches .
On the left side of the facade rises the bell tower built between the XII and XIII century high mullioned windows side by side.
