Viaggio in Europa (A Journey through Europe): 104 original optical views from the 18th century, watercolour prints cut and mixed with 18th century silk. These prints are coloured, with blue skies gradually turning light blue towards the horizon, streets and squares in extreme perspectives. The windows of buildings are pierced and covered with coloured paper, and by illuminating them from the back the effect is of a night view of the scene.

Le tavole di un'antica famiglia piacentina (the tables of an ancient Piacenza family): the second exhibition of unique pieces which belonged to the family of the counts Zanardi Landi includes: tassels, organza, lace, silver, crystals and rare porcelains. This is not a museum exhibition of precious objects, but the story of the family of Counts Zanardi Landi, through the mise en place used by the family over the centuries at its tables.
You will see seven halls of this ancient castle with the tables set for special occasions.

Costumi di Antonio Cabassi (The Costumes by Artemio Cabassi): with the third exhibition the doors of the Rivalta castle will open to an exhibition of ancient costumes edited by Artemio Cabassi, a great costume designer and designer of high fashion, a prestigious name of the theatrical and lyrical world both nationally and internationally.
Numerous stage costumes, inspired by 14th-century fashion but also by other historical periods, will be exhibited in two halls of the Castle: sumptuous costumes, meticulous reproductions of clothes of other times produced with precious materials, will color the halls of the castle.
