Buttigliera Alta is a town and comune of approximately 6,500 inhabitants, located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) from Turin in the Susa valley in Piedmont, northern Italy. It is not far to Avigliana, of which it once was a part.
It first became an autonomous fief in 1619 when Giovanni Carron received the fiefs of Buttigliera, Uriola, and Case Nicola - as well as the title of Count - from Duke Charles Emmanuel I of Savoy.
From that point in time the history of Buttigliera was intimately tied with the history of the Carron family. The last member of the family, Clementina Carron, died in April 1912.
