History

Canelli
Canelli Castle

The origins of Canelli are very ancient and the presence of a community in Roman times is confirmed by archaeological finds and inscriptions. In the Middle Ages it is the center of a consortium and probably the construction of the castle dates back to this period. In the thirteenth century it was the object of contention between the Alexandrians and Astesi, and it was the latter, after bloody struggles, who obtained possession of it. 1335, Asti sells the town to the Asinari which will be invested by the Savoy castle and its territory. In 1387 Canelli and Asti were assigned as dowry to Valentina Visconti, wife of Luigi d’Orlèans. In the fifteenth century it passed to the Scarampi behind a strong compensation in gold ducats, later it was sacked several times by the Spanish troops first and then by the French ones.
