What others are saying about Piedmont

Hi. Just wondering if anyone has experienced and opinions of the Italian dental service? How did it compare to the UK regarding costs? I am sure the standard works be very good.

Thanks

Hi I am just trying to get a sense of roughly how much the waste tax is in your various areas. 

I think part of the calculation is on the m2 of the property, would this include all outbuildings, the catena etc? 

Does anyone know if Palio de Asti has been scheduled this year and when?
