Edited by Natalia Encolpio and enriched with the map by Matteo Moscarelli, the book in 100 (+1) places enhances the charm of a territory that is a source of pride for the country. A place full of beauty and wonders that hide in the squares of the perched villages, under the stones of the castles and medieval churches, inside the cellars and among the tables of the taverns. The book is an unpublished itinerary that, through 101 author shots, leads us to discover a treasure of nature, history and traditions. An itinerary where we will also find the soul of some characters. From writers like Cesare Pavese Beppe Fenoglio and Vittorio Alfieri who have been able to tell the nuances of this land, to entrepreneurs such as Michele Ferrero and Carlo Petrini who have exalted it and made it grow with their entrepreneurial ability and foresight.
