Casale Monferrato (Piedmont)

Casale Monferrato is a town in the Piedmont region in Italy, in the province of Alessandria. It is situated about 60 km (37 mi) east of Turin on the right bank of the Po, where the river runs at the foot of the Montferrat hills. Beyond the river lies the vast plain of the Po valley. The cathedral is the most important religious building in Casale Monferrato, an example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture and rich in works of art. Other attractions are Jewish Synagogue, built in 1595 and with an impressive interior that testifies to the importance of this community, the Civic Museum, the Castle and the Theatre. There are also many Baroque palaces, including those of Saint George, the Town Hall, the Gozzani Palace of Treville, and the Ottolenghi and Mumico Palaces, and several other churches, some of which are quite imposing.

Salsa Verde (green sauce) is a recipe from Piedmont usually served with Bollito
Arrosto alle nocciole delle Langhe
