In Santa Vittoria d’Alba, in the hamlet of Cinzano, there is an archaeological area in the center of which there is a rather singular architectural complex: what has been defined as “Turriglio”. It stood
at a point where the roads that connected Pollentia, the closest city, Alba Pompeia and Augusta Bagiennorum converged. Powerful and towering, it dominates inside a large rectangular enclosure, punctuated by niches and its original function continues to escape certain definitions. It is believed that it could represent a funerary or celebratory monument, a type of building well known and visible in other territories that once belonged to the Romans.
