– Casa di Borgofranco

The building, with the main façade facing the River Po, is made of wood-framed brick, and based on edifices which have since disappeared in Borgofranco and Borgomasino, in the Canavese area. It is supported by three strong stone pillars. The second, slightly projecting floor featured an open loggia on the right side, now closed by a glass window. The painted panels between the corbels underneath the overhanging first floor, bearing coats of arms and cherubs, are extremely interesting and particularly charming. Equally interesting is the thatched roof of the house, a common feature of 15th-century buildings, especially in the Alpine area.
In 1884, the Ristorante San Giorgio was located in the house.
