     Born from the work of Master Michelangelo Pistoletto, the former Trombetta Wool Mill has been transformed into a cultural workshop, where art, territory and the art of making come together in the concept expressed in the famous symbol knows as “The Third Paradise”. Then lunch at the “Bistrot delle Arti”, located inside Cittadellarte.

     The Burcina Park, born from Felice Piacenza's passion for botany, includes varieties of plants and flowers from all over the world, that reach their maximum splendor in the month of May / June with the flowering of rhododendrons and became spectacular during the “foliage” in Autumn. 

     At the end of the visit, return to Oropa for lunch at the well known Croce Bianca Restaurant, followed by a very interesting visit to the Sanctuary, the ex-voto galleries, the Royal Savoy apartments, the Museum of Treasures and the nearby Botanical Garden.
