The construction of the repertoire of the Foglianti settlements in Savoy Piedmont was founded in order to survey the rich architectural and urban heritage that the sub-alpine region preserves. The aim of this paper is to analyse the monastic complexes from the historical and architectural point of view, through the study of the historical building sites and the construction phases from the end of the 16th century and the beginning of the 19th. The architectural investigations of the sites are based on the results of the most recent research on the analysis of the constructions and of the primary and secondary sources. The iconographic records and the images proposed in the text have been criti- cally selected according to criteria strictly related to architectural issues, with the aim of reconstructing and describing the design choices, the chronological sequence of the works and the conservation of the sites.
