The “Borgo della Cultura” of Domodossola

Domodossola’s old town, a very important cultural centre both at national and global level, has undergone major architectural redevelopment in recent years. The project was intended to create a new image of the entire historical centre through the redevelopment of its most important buildings and restoration of the medieval wall system and the graphic-historical symbol that represents it, the pentagon.
This led to the creation of a Borgo della Cultura, with the aim of enhancing all the existing historical elements within the ancient pentagonal walls, highlighting monuments and outstanding buildings and combining them through urban-architectural redevelopment interventions, supported by the decision to gradually make areas car-free.
For an authentic dive into the past, you need only take a delightful walk beneath the porticoes in Piazza Mercato, a symbol of the city, and along streets dotted with historic buildings, which are now museums and cultural sites.
The architecture of Domodossola, with its splendid historic centre enclosed by a wall that has jealously protected and guarded it over the centuries, shows itself today, thanks to excellent restoration work in recent years, in all its extraordinary beauty.
