A symbol of the Renaissance in Saluzzo, in the 15th century it was the residence of the family of Galezzo and Francesco Cavassa, both Vicars General of the Marquises.
It is a charming building with balconies, turrets and spiral staircases and the slope of the hill has been used to create 6 storeys. The building was restored by Emanuele Tapparelli d’Azeglio and donated by him to the city as a civic museum in 1883/90. It features a sequence of rooms with painted wooden ceilings, decorated walls, period style furniture, frescoes and paintings including the Madonna della Misericordia, a masterpiece by Hans Clemer (1499). The family emblem is everywhere: a fish swimming against the current and the ambiguous motto Droit quoi quil soit.
Casa Cavassa has been included on the national network of Case della Memoria – houses of memory.
