This is not a Baroque church, but I'd like that everybody take a look . The Barolo Chapel is a chapel never used, built up to repair the workers during rains and storms; when the Ceretto family in 1976 bought some cru wineyards, the chapel was included; in those years, during an exhibition in La Morra, they met the english artist David Tramlett and ask him to restore the chapel; he was so happy that involved in the matter also his friend Sol LeWitt.
Walkilng around in the area you will arrive in front of this particular colorful chapel, from which you look at a nice panorama toward La Morra and the wineyard area.

... and it's even part of the Euro-region named Alps-Mediterranean.

[IMG]http://i43.************/t8q1r8.jpg[/IMG]

The Alps-Mediterranean Euroregion (transnational co-operation structure) was created the 10th July 2007 between three Italian regions (Piedmont, Liguria and Aosta Valley) and two French regions (Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur). It has area of about 110,460 km2 and more than 17 millions of inhabitants. The largest cities are Turin and Genoa from Italian side and Lyon and Marseille from French side.

Pecetto Torinese

SS.Nome di Gesù e dei Battuti Bianchi (Luigi Molinari d'Andorno , XVII sec.)

The Church of the Confraternity of the Holy Name of Jesus and of the “Battuti Bianchi” (white penitents), so called because of the colour of the habit they wore on ceremonial occasions, was designed by the architect Luigi Molinari d’Andorno in the first half of the 17th century.
This church has a single nave and a rectangular choir; the façade is subdivided into two structures crowned by a tympanum and linked together by two vaults. The confraternity broke up in the 19th century, the church was then abandoned and later, during World War I, used as a warehouse. The outer façade, in baroque style, is outstanding for its harmonious elegance, lent variety by pilasters, vaults and niches; by a panel which originally bore a fresco; and by a large, framed window at the top. The steps leading up to the entrance are particularly noteworthy, as is the massive door of wood sculpted by the engraver Varetti in 1816. The church is now the property of the local Council.

S. Maria della neve (Bernardo A. Vittone , 1730-1739)

Madonna of the Snow Church
The old town centre, of mediaeval origin, not only features the tower, of which we have already spoken, but also, on the site of a previous church, the Parish Church of Pecetto, dedicated to Santa Maria della Neve (Madonna of the Snow), built from 1730 to 1739. This was the first building designed by the architect Bernardo Antonio Vittone. Inside, a series of six altars are arranged along the side walls, culminating in the elegant main altar, of marble; this came from the Eremo and is the work of Francesco Dellala of Beinasco.
On the rear wall is the altar piece made in 1783 by Vittorio Amedeo Rapous, who was a pupil of Beaumont. Among the other notable works of art are the canvas above the first altar on the left, by an unknown artist, showing St Ursula with her sisters in religion, and another devoted to the souls in Purgatory; then there is the canvas above the second altar on the right, showing the protectors of the parish, Sts Antimus and Ferrarius; at the bottom of this painting is an 18th-century image of Pecetto. The visitor should also note the imposing 1778 organ, with its five manuals, and the wooden pulpit. At the far end of the nave, on the right, is a small chapel in which there is a large 18th-century statue in papier maché of the grieving Virgin, remarkable both for the material used and for the technique of execution. Alongside the parish church is Villa Sacro Cuore (formerly known as Villa Triulzi), from which there are wonderful views over the surrounding countryside; the sunny park, sheltered on the north side by the massive church building, is home to evergreen plants and flowers which are generally found in areas with a warmer climate.
Until 1988 the Municipio (Town Hall) was also close to the church; its current premises are in a fine mid-19th-century villa with an attractive garden.
The Biblioteca (Pecetto Library) is housed in what was formerly the school and subsequently the old Town Hall.
