Piedmont is a region in Italy that has a rich cultural history, natural landscapes, and architectural heritage. Situated in the northwest region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland, Piedmont feels as though it is the setting for an Italian fairytale.
The name Piedmont (Piamonte in Italian) has Latin roots and literally translates as “at the foot of the mountains,” due to the region being situated at the foot of the Alps. Here you can find the highest mountains and glaciers in all of Italy.
The capital of the region is the city of Turin which was the root of some of the most important cultural movements in the world. Turin is famous for its refined architecture, restaurants, and art. The great Le Corbusier (known as the father of modern architecture) referred to Turin as the city with the most beautiful landscapes in the world. The surrounding parks, rivers, and great lakes create a dreamlike environment reminiscent of nearby Tuscany.
For centuries Turin was home to the royal House of Savoy, and this history retains a notable influence throughout the city. The historical heritage is so abundant that one could almost consider the entire city to be a museum. The city itself was key in the creation of the Italian State, and this epic story can be traced in the magnificent Museo Nazionale del Risorgimento in the heart of Turin. The Castillo de Valentino, Sábana Santa, the Palace of Carignanco, and the Plaza de San Carlo are just some of the notable wonders that can be found in this incredible city.
If this weren’t enough, Piedmont, being Italy´s second largest region with an area of 25,402 km squared, is full of world famous vineyards that represent one sixth of the total vineyards in the country. The region is known for its wines, aromatic white truffles, and specialty chocolate.
UNESCO has declared multiple sites in the region of Piedmont as World Heritage Sites. Los Palafitos (prehistoric pile dwellings) around the Alps and the wine-growing landscape of the regions of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato are just two notable examples.
