- Art & Culture
In the splendid setting of Palazzo Salis, in Tirano (Sondrio), there are exhibitions, shows, cultural and food and wine events.
Palazzo Conti Sertoli Salis, in Tirano, is one of the most architecturally important buildings in the whole of Valtellina.
The palazzo was built in the 16th century by the union of four preexisting buildings and is today a remarkable historic home museum maintaining its original decor, frescoes and furniture.
The museum comprises ten beautiful halls, the most remarkable being the Saloncello, with vaulted ceilings painted in the trompe-l’oeil technique. For centuries this room was where the most prominent political and clerical figures of the Valtellina met.
The palazzo’s Italian style gardens, a rarity this close to the Alps, are also noteworthy, with the boxwood hedges forming four separate square mazes, numerous fruit trees and an imposing 200-year-old Lebanese cedar.
The palazzo hosts exhibitions, festivals, cultural and food and wine events.
