Vigoleno is a village-castle where everything seems to be, despite the narrowness of the space, a labyrinth in which you never know where you are, whether in the medieval village or in the castle, so much so that one is mirrored in the other. Vigoleno has a great evocative power. What impresses most, looking from the plain, are the wide expanses of...
