Medieval Village and Castle

back
The village is in fact more akin to an archaeological-monument site and came to life in Valentino Park as a pavilion for the International Expo, held in Turin from April through November 1884.

It was planned to be demolished at the end of the International Expo, but it became a city museum in 1942.
It is a fairly faithful reproduction of a typical late medieval town with a reconstruction of streets, houses, churches, squares, fountains and decorations of the time surrounded by walls and fortresses and towering above a stronghold fortress. Access to the village is through a tower-gate.
The construction of the village and the stronghold fortress was inspired by numerous castles of Piedmont and Valdaosta regions.

The village has been housing craft workshops since 1884.

The stronghold fortress has four storeys. The basement houses the prisons. The ground floor houses the entrance hall, the lobby, the courtyard, the soldiers' dormitory where mercenaries slept, the kitchens and dining room. The first floor houses the chamber of the guardian who controlled access to the drawbridge, the antechamber and the baronial hall, the bedroom inspired by the chambers of the King of France in Issogne Castle, the oratory, the Matron's room and the chapel.
