“The Salesian House of Muzzano rises in a charming panoramic position, rich in woods and green parts, on the hillside slopes from Graglia and on the promontory that overhangs the Elvo’s stream. It’s surrounded by a vast park and by a forest bordering the stream.”
The house arose in the old manor house of Gastaldetti family. The building in 1927 had been sold together with the park, the land and the woods to the Jesuit fathers of the Provence of Turin, who established there the Apostolic School. The school worked until 1953. After 8th March 1957 the property, now almost completely abandoned, passed to the Salesians, that started the first urgent works of accommodation the first machinery necessary to the laboratories of mechanics, electromechanics and carpentry, so the 1st of October 1957 could begin the school year 1957-58.
Since the 90s the structure is also a “Casa per Ferie” (religious guest-house) and it offers hospitality to religious groups and to families. Ideal for stays and meetings, it is close to centers of religious and cultural interest: the Sanctuary of Graglia, the Sanctuary of Oropa, the monastery of Bose, Sordevolo with the representation of the Passion, Pollone with the memories of Pier Giorgio Frassati and the Park of Burcina, the city of Biella and the Ricetto di Candelo.
