It was brought to its present form in the year 1754 by the Count Gabuti di Bistagno, who had bought it the year before and modified the pre-existing medieval structure after a project of Benedetto Alfieri. The front has the typical aspect of a building by Alfieri, with its central main door with the balcony above. The Museum displays memorabilia, paintings, weaponry and coins from the period 1797-1870, donated by families of Asti. From the rooms, equipped with multimedia supports, you go down to the air raid shelter from World War II, where a touching projection retraces the events of that period.
Since 2016 the Museum of the Italian Garibaldi Partisan Division can be visited: priceless memorabilia previously safeguarded in Florence and Rom are on display.
