Stresa (Piedmont)

Stresa is a town on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. Since the early 20th century, the main source of income has been the tourist trade; like other places on Lake Maggiore, it benefits from spectacular views as well as areas of historical and architectural interest. It is situated on road and rail routes to the Simplon Pass.

Recipes From Piedmont



Pesche ripiene piemontesi is a typical Piedmontese dessert made with peaches and crushed amaretti that you often find on the menus during the summer season. 

This week, we use one of Northern Italy's best red wines, Barolo, in a beautiful risotto dish adorned with adorable heart-shaped slices of Fontina cheese.
Salsa Verde (green sauce) is a recipe from Piedmont usually served with Bollito
Arrosto alle nocciole delle Langhe

What others are saying about Piedmont

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

Italian passport. 


I am sorry if this has been covered before, but just looking for a brief idea. I understand that the process of obtaining an Italian passport can be arduous.
