Aleramo, founder of the Marquis of Monferrato, has always been surrounded by a shroud of legend and romanticism. This character really existed in the 10 th century and historic documents regarding him can be found. When they reached Sezzadio, the women started to have labour pains and was welcomed by the Lords of the village in their castle.
Shortly afterwards, a beautiful baby boy was born, baptized with the name Aleramo. A few months later the couple set off on their journey to Rome, leaving the little boy with the lords in the village, but sadly on their return journey home they passed away. The young Aleramo was brought up by the lords of the castle in Sezzadio, and when he reached the age of 15, he was made esquire by a noble man from Monferrato. In the meantime, the Emperor Ottone was in the region of Lombardy to suppress a rebellion, and had requested the local nobleman and his faithful to send him a of esquires for court.
After many days, they stopped in the Apennines on the border with the region of Liguria, near the city of Alassio. This city once known as Lamio, was renamed as it is known today in honour of Alasia or Adelasia. Life for the two was immediately difficult with no food, and no shelter to live.
Aleramo built a refuge and started working as a coal-man. He sold coal at the local market in Albenga, whereas his lover was good at embroidery and sold her work, earning some money to get by. One day, Aleramo went to sell his coal to the Bishop of Albenga, who instantly noticed his polite manners and made him his esquire.
One day, the Emperor requested again more men for his battles and the bishop sent his boy to court, to help the cooks, but basically to be a dishwasher. Aleramo was led to the Emperor, and that poor humble dishwasher, all black and dirty had to reveal his true identity and wait for the man to explode. As a matter of fact the red and white silver will become from then onwards the colours that represent the Monferrato territory up until our days.
As a of esteem and reconciliation, Ottone conferred him with the title of Marquis, rewarding him with as much land as he could possibly cover on horseback in three days and three nights. A remarkable horseback ride that a thousand years or so marked the borders of the Monferrato territory.
