The Baroque in Casale Monferrato
The old capital of Monferrato is one of the most interesting art city in Piedmont.
Casale Monferrato has been defined as "a Baroque city" for the many palaces and churches with a quality interior, which was restored at the age of the Baroque.
The synagogue is particularly interesting. It was built in 1595 and still has right inside the jewish art museum, with unique pieces.
Typically Baroque, the Chapel of Sant'Evasio houses the relics of the patron saint of Casale preserved in a silver statue repeatedly rebuilt following sacrilegious thefts.
The palaces San Giorgio, Magnocavalli, Treville and Sannazzaro are wonderful examples of Baroque art. Also Santa Caterina is a Baroque church and has beautiful frescoes.
