Discover and rediscover landscapes that are both memory and narrative

Some 30 writers have contributed to this book about the wine-growing countryside of southern Piedmont, whose candidacy is being proposed for Unesco World Heritage listing. They describe the identities of these places, the major and minor stories that connect memory with the present. And since words are not enough, these hills, with their vineyards, houses and castles, are shown in numerous illustrations that try to reveal new aspects of the landscape. Apart from being beautiful to look at, this book is intended to stimulate better planning policies.
