Monastero Bormida is a Piedmont village of 932 residents in the province of Asti, which is 38km away. Founded by a group of Benedictine monks around 1050, today the village is still home to its fourteenth-century castle, the tower and the square which the church of Santa Giulia overlooks. The Romanesque stone bridge withstood eight centuries of flooding. In 1881, Augusto Monti, a professor of Italian and Latin whose students included Cesare Pavese, Giulio Einaudi, and Leone Ginzburg, was born there.
