Landscape

Aramengo lies in the northern part of the province of Asti.

It is 30 km from Asti, the provincial capital.


History

Aramengo gained, in Roman times, particular importance due to its control of the road that connected Asti to the Po valley.

The historical events of Aramengo, however, are closely linked to the feudal Radicati family.

Aramengo later passed under the rule of the Counts of Cocconato; it was then divided among the Marquises of Monferrato, the Dukes of Savoy and other feudal lords.


Administration


Food and wine and typical products

The village is renowned for its breeding of Piedmontese cattle.

Aramengo brings delicious cured meats, honeys, and truffles to the table, accompanied by Freisa and Barbera wines.


To be seen

Beneath the fortress where the castle once stood, the majestic parish church of St. Anthony Abbot (chiesa parrocchiale di Sant'Antonio Abate) towers.

Of particular interest are also the Church of Our Lady of the Snows (Chiesa della Madonna della Neve), the Church of St. George (Chiesa di San Giorgio), and the Shrine of St. Mary of Gonengo (Santuario di Santa Maria di Gonengo).

Outdoor enthusiasts should note the Giant Bench “Bonardina” (in the hamlet of Marmorito Santa Maria), “La Ficca”, a sulfur spring along the Riofreddo stream, and the art installation Finestra sul Marmorito.

Curiosity

The building that today houses Aramengo's municipal offices was built with housing functions in mind.

The structure, in fact, was the home of the wealthy Serra family.
