Tiny village, spectacular view

On the border between the Langhe and Monferrato, Trezzo Tinella, a tiny village set among the woods, is guardian of one of the most spectacular views in the entire territory. From Boscasso you have the impression of being on “top of the world“, where the scenic amphitheatre of the mountain chain that runs between Valle d’Aosta and Liguria is balanced by the images of infinite small villages that appear on the plateau. Here the Langa woman and her role in the history of these villages are honoured with a monument, located in Piansarìn, which is much loved by the inhabitants of the Langhe. Points of interest in the village are the Parish of Sant’Antonio Abate, a typical Piemontese neoclassic construction with barrel vault, and the Chapel of Sant’Anna ai Fiori.


On the road between Alps and hills

Rural traditions and commercial needs gave rise to figures that became legendary: they crossed these hills for decades, going from farmhouse to farmhouse and bringing goods and news from other towns. The cadreghé (carpenters who made chairs) and the cartunè (carters) increased trade and legends: the art of storytelling was very important for the evening entertainment, and the farmhouses turned into improvised theatres after sunset, where people acted and invented their life.
