Marta Chianale tells us about an enchanted place in Piedmont, near the city of Turin: The Ducal Castle of Agliè. In the little burg of Agliè, located in the hills of Canavese, an area of Pidemont (Northern Italy), there is a Castle with seven centuries of history; an architectural jewel that, since 1997, is also a UNESCO cultural heritage site.
