Garda inherited from his father the Samone Castle - also known as "Castle Garda" - and was the architect of the most dramatic changes to the property where since the mid-1800s, were hosted personalities of the aristocracy, culture and politics .
In Ivrea the Garda Museum houses the "Garda Collection", a large collection of Japanese lacquer and oriental art donated to the Museum by Pier Alessandro Garda itself towards the end of the nineteenth century.
