THE TOWN OF ALBA WRITTEN BY FENOGLIO

“While the bell towers of Alba were strucking five o’clock, a noise burst out on the river that one did not know whether it was men doing it or the earth or God, the noise that begins battles…” (I ventitre giorni della città di Alba, 1952 – The twenty-three days of the city of Alba,1952). On March 1, 1922 Beppe Fenoglio, the “outsider” who revolutionized the literature of the Twentieth century, was born in Alba. A writer and partisan, he was always viscerally linked to his city and Langhe, the hills of his youthful summers and the dramatic and extraordinary experience of the Resistance. A lover and translator of the English language, he still conquers us today with his sharp, ironic and incredibly contemporary style. Among the stops on the tour, supplemented by readings from Fenoglio’s texts: the Hall of Resistance, inside the Town Hall, which preserves the Gold Medal for Military Valor obtained by the city for having been liberated by Partisans; Piazza del Risorgimento, with the Cathedral of S. Lorenzo and the former home of Fenoglio family (this second site is visible outside only); the “G. Govone” Institute where the young Beppe attended school.
