Show all 8 images
The cultural walk starts from Stampa through Coltura and Borgonovo and ends at the Ciasa Granda Museum, where works by various Giacometti are exhibited.
From the Val d'Arc stop, we go down to the house of Agostino Stampa, Augusto Giacometti's grandfather. Over a historic bridge we reach Palazzo Castelmur. Vis-à-vis on a hill west of the palazzo is the church of San Pietro, where a fresco by Augusto Giacometti from 1743 can be admired.
We cross the small village of Coltura towards the east. After about 15 minutes we reach the current school building, built between 1961 and 1963 by Bruno Giacometti.
Continue on a dirt road to the village of Borgonovo. Here are the birthplaces of Alberto and Diego Giacometti and that of Annette Stampa, Alberto's wife. We walk back towards Stampa, passing by the church of San Giorgio, where the graves of members of the well-known family are located. The stele on Giovanni's grave is by Alberto and the stained glass window by Augusto from 1935.
In the centre of stampa, on our left, we see the Giacometti studio and the house where Alberto grew up. Next door is the Centro Giacometti, which offers exhibitions and lectures about the family in summer. The last stop of our cultural walk is the Ciäsa Granda Museum, which exhibits various works by members of the famous Bergell family.
Lunch break in Coltura - the small Bistrot la Stala d'arte offers tasty local dishes in an artful ambience.
