We then reach Corso Mazzini and Palazzo Levrini Stringher, a building with frescoes showing sacred subjects and mythological scenes, and some historic scenes of town life such as the pharmacy.
Continuing along via Carlo Alberto the route leads to Palazzo de Portis, owned by one of the most powerful noble families in the town, then crossing via Canussio you come to the beautiful Castle of the same name, finally arriving at Piazza Diaz with its Rationalist period architecture.
