Tradition indicates this building, located in the historic center of Valduggia, as the birthplace of the famous painter Gaudenzio Ferrari, born around 1475, one of the greatest exponents of Italian Renaissance painting, considered one of the seven governors of the temple of painting along with Mantegna, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Leonardo, Raphael and Titian. The current shape and consistency of the building, which due to its historical value and the architectural elements present is placed under the protection of the Superintendence of Cultural and Environmental Heritage, derive from interventions that took place from the sixteenth century, the century to which the central nucleus of the building dates back. The sixteenth-century layout is attested by the beautiful vaults of the halls, the coffered ceiling and the monumental fireplace, attributed to the Master Stonemason HW, as well as by the date MDLXXVII (1577) carved on the valuable wooden door of the façade. The façade of the southern area and the atrium and staircase sector, with the arched loggia on the second floor and with the major external decorations date back to this intervention in the mid-eighteenth century. The building has a total commercial area of about 729sqm on three floors of about 243sqm each plus an attic floor, not habitable; The living area is about 426sqm. The property includes a small plot of land located at the back of the building where we find two masonry buildings, one with a covered area of 80sqm divided into two floors and one, once used as a warehouse, arranged on a floor with a covered area of 40sqm The house, as well as being a building of great charm and historical importance, is located in a strategic position being the village of Valduggia in the lower Valsesia, in a strategic position since it is only 20km from the delightful Lake Orta, 30km from the magnificent Lake Maggiore and only 90km from Milan and Switzerland.
