Saluzzo is a typically fourteenth-century village: small cobbled streets, churches and elegant noble palaces with gardens populate the historic center. The city has existed since Roman times. Ruled by fourteen marquises, the Marquisate of Saluzzo reached its maximum splendor in the fifteenth century, under the governments of Ludovico I and Ludovico II. In 1511 it became a sort of small capital of the territory. After a brief period of decline, the city was later annexed to the Duchy of Savoy (1601) and then to the French kingdom during the Napoleonic period. With the constitution of the Kingdom of Italy, it was named the chief town of the district and the seat of the sub-prefecture. The city is "guarded" by the Stone King: the Monviso Mountain, the highest peak of the Cottian Alps.
