Pavese places in Santo Stefano Belbo
Santo Stefano Belbo is where the last novel by Cesare Pavese – The Moon And The Bonfires, published in 1950 – takes place. While visiting Pavese places, one can recollect the events of the novel, along with the writer’s biography. The house where he was born, the Church of Saints James and Cristopher where he got baptized, the Moncucco hill, the carpenter’s shop of his great friend Pinolo Scaglione, the Mora farm, the Palazzina del Nido, the Gaminella lodge and, finally, his grave in the cemetery of Santo Stefano Belbo.
Waiting to visit these places in person, watch our series Io vengo di là on our YouTube channel.
And if you love hiking, do not miss our MOM – Multimedia Outdoor Museum, launched during the Pavese Festival 2021. An actual open-air museum of our territory, designed along five themed itineraries to explore the places, the characters and the myths of Pavese’s universe, overlaying real pathways to virtual ones. A new way to experience and interpret the landscape of the hills surrounding Santo Stefano Belbo and the nature and culture of UNESCO’s heritage sites of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.
