Arona (Piedmont)

Arona is a town and comune on Lake Maggiore, in the province of Novara (northern Italy). Its main economic activity is tourism, especially from Milan, France, and Germany. Arona's main attractions include: La Rocca, a park owned by the Borromeo family containing the castle of Arona; the Lungolago ("Lakeside") offering a view of the castle on the opposite shore, the Rocca Borromeo di Angera, the lake and the Alps, and the Collegiata della Natività di Maria Vergine (1482). Swimming in Lake Maggiore is now possible, after years of pollution. A beach has been refurbished by this group close to Piazza del Popolo in the town centre, called Le rocchette ("The little rocks").

NEIGHBOURS DOG NOISE IN THE COUNTRYSIDECan anyone advise what the regulations are on control of dogs on private land? I live up a hillside with one adjoining neighbour who has two dogs. The dogs are kept permanently outside and are for 'security' I'm told.
