The museum is organised into five rooms located on the first floor of the 17th/ 18th-century Palazzo dei Conti Borelli in Demonte. The permanent exhibition displays photographs, writings, personal recollections as well as documents that prove the author's strong relationship with Demonte and the Stura Valley, but also her paintings and drawings, a photographic reconstruction of her Milanese studio in Via Brera and the covers of her literary works. Graziella Romano, known as Lalla Romano, was born in Demonte in 1906 into an old Piedmontese family of Jewish origin. One of the most interesting writers of the Italian 20th century, she was also a poet, journalist (for the newspapers Il Giorno and Corriere della Sera) and Italian aphorist, but she also successfully concentrated on painting. The artist died in 2001 at the age of 95 in Milan. The second floor of Palazzo Borelli houses a multi-purpose cultural centre run by the Associazione Amici di Demonte.
