Barolo with the visit of Borges

Tour the palace (SEE “DAY GUIDED TOURS”) and deepen your connection with literature and architecture.

The poems of Jorge Luis Borges add to the Barolo’s spirit of Dante. The famous Argentine writer was a great admirer of The Divine Comedy. Since the Barolo Palace is inspired by the Italian poem and Borges was particularly fond of this palace, this tour was created as a tribute to culture.

Professor María Kodama (Borges’ widow) personally selected the poems recited in this guided tour to create an unforgettable experience. Experiencing the Barolo Palace through verses by Borges is a different way of appreciating the combination of different art forms from another point of view.

Guided tours with Dante

Take the traditional tour of the Palace (SEEDAY GUIDED TOURS”) enlivened by a colorful actor who will recite verses in old Italian to enhance the connection between the The Divine Comedy and the Barolo.

Dante (the actor who performs the role) shows himself as a spirit that goes through the Palace searching for Beatrice, both his muse and his unrequited love.

This is a guided tour that always remains in the memory of our visitors. It showcases the Barolo as the architectonic representation of the Italian poem in which our very own Dante acquires his well-deserved leading role.

ABOUT US

The Barolo Palace

The Barolo Palace pays tribute to The Divine Comedy by DANTE ALIGHIERI.
It exhibits a unique architecture with a mix of neo-Romanesque and neo-gothic styles. The dome, with its Hindu style from the Bhubaneshwar region, represents the tantric union between Dante and Beatrice, the main characters of the Divine Comedy.
