Chapter Summary

This part consists of outlines of all the Templar houses traced in North-west Italy so far. On the basis of these attestations, it seems that the importance of the Templar house of Asti was also closely linked to the positions of power obtained in the Order by local families.The enduring relevance of this convent is also highlighted by the fact that Nicola da Montecucco, brother of Giacomo,Templar master of Lombardy,was received into the Temple here.It has already been shown in the introduction of this book that the attestation is definitely a forgery, by the renowned forger Francesco Giuseppe Meyranesio, which was then made known to Amedeo Ponziglione.Consequently, the next mention of the Templars in Mondovi dated 1216, again pointed out by Meyranesio, is probably a forgery too.
