Full Description

What’s it like to sit on a bench made for someone 32 feet tall? Why are cardoons hunchback? Where will you find a masterpiece of early Spanish painting, envied by the Prado Museum? Which food is precious enough to merit an auction? Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, treasures of the Piemonte region, have been included by UNESCO on their World Heritage List for their wine landscape. These are territories profoundly different from one another, where ancient agricultural traditions are combined with continual research and innovation. Along with top quality wine and food, you will find small villages and historic castles on top of hills, caressed by fog and fecundity, and also painters, writers and sport champions who have become legends. This is an uncommon tour through 111 and more places, stories and secrets of one of most extraordinary and unknown areas of Italy.
