Biella (Piedmont)

Biella is a town and comune in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, the capital of the province of the same name. It is located about 80 kilometres (50 miles) northeast of Turin and about 80 kilometres (50 miles) west-northwest of Milan. It lies in the foothills of the Alps, in the Bo mountain range near Mt. Mucrone and Camino, an area rich in springs and lakes, the heart of the Biellese Alps irrigated by several mountain streams: the Elvo to the west of the town, the Oropa and the Cervo to the east. Nearby natural and notable tourist attractions include the Zegna Viewpoint, the Bielmonte Ski Resort, Burcina Natural Reserve, and the moors to the south of town. The Sanctuary of Oropa is a site of religious pilgrimages. In 2003, the Sacred Mountain of Oropa was inserted by UNESCO in the World Heritage List.

Hi I am just trying to get a sense of roughly how much the waste tax is in your various areas. 

I think part of the calculation is on the m2 of the property, would this include all outbuildings, the catena etc? 

Does anyone know if Palio de Asti has been scheduled this year and when?

Hi we have just been up to our local commune and collected a form to apply for residency {EU passport holders}
