What others are saying about Piedmont

@JC JC asks:

Hi everyone - are any of you non-Italian residents looking into the Super Eco Bonus? I am still waiting for information from the bank of how it can work with the trading of tax credits.

Hi we are planning to drive down this summer.

In the old days we would take a trailer loaded with personal effects, mainly old used items of very little if any value. 

My question is has anyone passed through French customs with a trailer? 

I would like to know if anyone has been successful in growing lemon trees in Piedmont? We are @ 600 meters elevation, south of Alba. We will use terra cotta pots, and have a micro climate area next to our stables. Full sun all day with 1 meter thick limestone surrounding area. Stephen
