Hills, fertile plains, and noble Piedmontese “cru” in the shadow of the Castle where mythology triumphs: Bruno conquers international tourism.
Bruno lies in the High Monferrato.
It is about 34 km from Asti, the provincial capital.
The earliest evidence of human activity in the Bruno area dates back to the first millennium before Christ.
It was a fief of the Scarampi family and then of the Faà.
In the eighteenth century, it passed under the dominion of the Savoy.
With the birth of the Province of Asti (1935), Bruno left the Province of Alessandria to become part of it.

Food and wine and typical products.
Corn, wheat and fodder crops are reported.
Typical wines are Barbera and Moscato.
There is also no shortage of apple, peach, walnut and hazelnut cultivation.
To be seen.
The Castle of the Marquises Faà (Castello dei Marchesi Faà) is a typical stately mansion (privately owned).
The Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation (Chiesa di Nostra Signora Annunziata), a parish church, was erected on the site of an ancient cemetery.
The square facing the parish church, the Belvedere Don Andrea Ivaldi, is one of Bruno's most fascinating viewpoints.
Also, worth seeing, is the Church of Our Lady of Mercy (Chiesa della Madonna della Misericordia), patroness of Bruno's Alpini troops and Alpine Rescue.
The splendid “Sala delle Feste” of the Castle of the Marchesi Faà, frescoed with paintings recalling Olympus and the profane, was the object of “censure” by Blessed Francesco Faà.
In his will, in fact, he asked the heir to intervene on the “most indecent” figures of nudity.
