The great tragedian Vittorio Alfieri was born in this house on January 16, 1749. The building came to his family during the 17th century and was “modernized” around  1736 by the architect Benedetto Alfieri (a cousin of Vittorio). Beyond the small atrium there is a trapezoidal, very spectacular courtyard, which opens up to the garden on the left, in which the platan of 1849 stands. The first floor contains the apartments and the birth room of Vittorio Alfieri, who lived in this house only until the age of five years. The building hosts the Foundation “Centro Studi Alfieriani” and the Alfieri Museum.
