It is a museum dedicated to the most illustrious citizen of Dogliani. The Municipality of Dogliani, the Luigi Einaudi Foundation in Rome and the Luigi Einaudi Foundation in Turin, have created the new Luigi Einaudi Museum, inaugurated on June 25, 2011,
to honor the Luigi Einaudi a politician that has always worked for the good of its country and has helped to make Dogliani known at a national and international level.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the election of Luigi Einaudi as President of the Italian Republic, an exhibition of documents regarding his life and his political activities entitled “The Legacy of Luigi Einaudi” was inaugurated at the Palazzo del Quirinale in Rome.
The same exhibition, with slightly different contents, has found a permanent location in Dogliani.
The exhibition has been curated by the architect Roberto Einaudi, and recreates the various aspects that have characterized the personality of Einaudi:
Liberal economist, professor at the Bocconi University in Milan and at University in Turin, winemaker at his farm in Dogliani, collector of rare books, journalist at “La Stampa”, “Corriere della Sera” and at “The Economist”, director of scientific journals such as “Riforma Sociale” and the “Rivista di storia economica”, Governor of the Bank of Italy from 1945 to 1948, President of the Italian Republic from 1948 to 1955.
Exhibition panels are displayed in chronological order in the hall’s rooms of the Comune di Dogliani, starting from the entrance portico to the long corridor on the third floor, the room “Sala Consiglio” and the room of the former public prosecutor’s.
The museum itinerary is divided into several sections that retrace the life of Luigi Einaudi even in its most familiar and related aspects to this town.
