Open Log Fires in Piemonte [and other areas]
Just had a log burning stove fitted in our house, because Piemonte has banned open log fires. Only found out from a plumber who was called in to mend the toilet flush, who told me of the ban. [I did look it up online to check!]
What surprised me, as a non resident, was that the government [or possibly Piemonte Authorites] gave me Euro1500 toward the cost of purchasing and installing log burner,
[Whilst we loved having an open fire, we had for some time thought that we should go to a log burner stove to save on heating costs [and decorating]].
Most of the locals will, of course, be ignoring the ban - especially as the local Comune lets out tenders every year for local residents to cut wood on the Comune's land.
