Art, vitality and sharing: these are the three values of Grignasco, a small town on the Novara hills. In the centre, it hosts the Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta, a baroque central-plan masterpiece designed by architect Bernardo Antonio Vittone. All around, the town extend itself in narrow, winding streets dated back to medieval epoque. The green ivy climbs these historic walls with the same ardour as the Grignasco’s inhabitants. Curious and hard-working, over the centuries they led an economic development by combining wine-making with the production of furniture and yarns - today internationally recognised excellences. Closed to traditions and happy to spend time together, since the end of the 19th century the inhabitants celebrate the Carnival with the local masks Giùan and Mariana. The celebrations start with the famous "tripe in the square” and follow with a series of amusing events, organized by the Carnival Committee. Living in Grignasco means being part of a vibrant community that enjoys this tiny town as if it were the heart of the world.
