From the junction for Castagneto Po the journey leads to a roundabout where the direction to take is the straight road that crosses the bridge over the Po and leads to the centre of Chivasso, the ancient Clavasium. This was always an important market and strategic place of trade due to its position on the main Monferrato road: the entrance to the town is dominated by the 15th century Duomo of Santa Maria Assunta, one of the most important examples of gothic art in Piemonte, with a facade richly decorated with terracotta friezes and sculptures, and inside of which is an altarpiece by Defendente Ferrari. Of the castle of the Aleramici of the Marquisate of Monferrato there only remains the Octagonal Tower, between Piazza della Repubblica and Via Po. On the facade of the current Palace of Economy and del Labour "Luigi Einaudi" (probably created in the 17th century as a resting place for passing soldiers) there has been put a Clock of new time to commemorate the French Revolution: the day is divided into 10 hours, each hour in 100 minutes, each minute in 100 seconds, and the hands make just one revolution per day. In Piazza d'Armi stands the Lapis Longus, a 4m tall stone funerary monument of the 7th to 6th century BC: in 1649 it was turned into a pillory for punishing debtors.
