In southern Piedmont, just under an hour’s drive from cities such as Milan, Genoa and Turin, it is possible to find a fabulous oasis surrounded by peace and nature: rolling hills where the atmosphere of the peasant culture has evolved in times, without renouncing the respect of their precious traditions. Here, it’s where GAVI was born.
