Ivrea (Piedmont)

Ivrea is a town of the Metropolitan City of Turin, in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. Situated on the road leading to the Aosta Valley, it straddles the Dora Baltea and is regarded as the centre of the Canavese area. One of the main festivals in Ivrea is the Carnival. The core celebration of Ivrea Carnival centers around the epic Battle of the Oranges. This involves thousands of townspeople, divided into nine on-the-ground teams who throw oranges at card-based teams during the last three carnival days: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The carnival takes place 40 days before Easter and ends on the night of "Fat Tuesday" with a solemn ceremony that involves a funeral commemorating the concluded festival.

Question about pharmacies 

I am currently in Italy but managed to forget my invaluable back tablets. 

Do pharmacies require a doctors prescription are can you purchase medication over the counter. 

They are only anti inflammatory? 

Thanks. 

@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?
