Cuneo is a city in Piedmont, Northern Italy. It is located at 550 meters (1,804 ft) in the south-west of Piedmont, at the confluence of the rivers Stura and Gesso. It is located near six mountain passes Colle della Maddalena, Colle di Tenda, Tunnel of Tenda, Colle del Melogno, Colle San Bernardo, Colle di Nava, Colle di Cadibona.
Surrounded by the snow-covered Alps and dominated by the Torre Civica Cuneo has several monuments and cultural sights. Piazza Galimberti, a vast, central square, is the point of departure for a visit to Cuneo Vecchia (or old Cuneo) with its arcades, lanes and monuments: the Cathedral, the former Church of St. Francis and the Civic Museum.
‘Old World Italian’ is the fruit of years of passion and research, and documents the couple’s move from a world of croissants, pates and rich sauces, to one dominated by olive oil and pasta, hazelnuts and strong espresso.
