Palazzo Barolo was once the merry family home in which Elena Matilde Provana, daughter to the Earl of Druent, experienced the joy of marriage and motherhood. Tragically, it also became the place where her cruel, greedy father forced her to be separated from her husband and children, leading to Elena's self-inflicted death as she threw herself from one of the palace's windows. Her grave, however, remains lost to this day. In 1701 the dead were usually buried inside churches or palaces of nobility, but the church of San Dalmazzo, were Elena was wed, bears no clue as to her resting place, nor does her old home of Palazzo Barolo. Could she have been buried on unholy soil, as prescribed for suicides? At the moment, nobody has a definitive answer.
