Veano

 

The neo-Gothic church of San Lorenzo stands out among the vineyards in the district of Veano. Near the village is a large building owned by the Collegio Alberoni in Piacenza which today is used by students and the elderly during the summer. In 1835 the Duchess Maria Louise of Austria was a guest here. In the College chapel, dedicated to Saint Vincent de Paul, is a series of frescoes executed by the Piacenza artist Luciano Ricchetti in 1948. Some of the scenes recall the Allied soldiers who were held prisoner here by the Italian Army during the Second World War. The Collegio Alberoni had been requisitioned and transformed into "prisoner-of-war camp no. 29". The stories of some of the officers were recounted by the film director Antony Minghella in his film "The English Patient" in 1997.
