We have visited this Ricetto as we were looking for a day trip out of Milan. It's been a very nice discovery. It's a very small, medieval location next to the city of Biella. It a place where farmers used to locate and protect goods cominng from the agricolture, including grapes to be transformed in wines 8very common in the area). The structure of Ricetto shows the defensive walls, and after wolking through the entry gate, different parallel narrow roads, where today artists have located their laboratories. Everything is perfectly maintained, with cobblestones all throughtout (hece i suggest to wear confortable outdoor shoes).

Visited the site in early spring it is a quick visit 45-60 min. There are a few small artisans in the ricetto that are worth a visit. In early spring the restaurants were not open. Very interesting perspective into western European life/housing in the medieval period.

Wonderful location, poorly maintained. The vast majority of shops was closed, dirty streets with ravaged trash bins, dangling electric wires outside the buildings, and the list could go on. What stood out the most was the overall lack of care in the detail, and the complete absence of a shared and orchestrated intent in making the place a cozy sight. Wouldn’t recommend spending time there, unless you’re staying somewhere near and have a spare hour. Keep your expectations low, you’ll most likely be disappointed. Definitely not “one of the best medieval villages in Italy”.

Close to the beautiful Alpine landscape around Biella (and close to both Milan and Turin) you can find this small walled town. Beautiful small medieval constructions, nice restaurants, quiet atmosphere.
