Valentina and Maurizio – Wedding in Piedmont, Italy
10 Jan 2012
My centre of life is Diano Marina, in the province of Liguria. But my work let me go in many othe parts of Italy. That´s why I spend a lot of time in Cinque terre, Toscany, in Trentino, in Calabria in the Valley of Aosta, and in Venice. Travelling and meet new people is one of the most beautiful aspect of this kind of job. But sometimes there´s a wedding right around the corner. So the wedding of Valentina and Maurizio. The celebration of them took place immediately after the Apennine *, in the beautiful Piedmont, specifically in the province of Cuneo. It is located near Alba, Barbaresco, Neive, Neviglie and Trezzo Tinella. A zone that is known all over the world for their superior wines. The wedding itself was really nice. Less pretentious than many other Italian festivals, but it was distinguished by a very relaxed atmosphere and also incredibly funny. So just as the newlyweds had hoped. The ceremony took place in Pollenzo, in a restaurant called “La del Ciau Tornavento” (www.laciaudeltornavento.it). The restaurant boasts a wine cellar, where everyone who even slightly familiar with wines could get into rapture :).
* The Apennines form the beginning of the northern Apennines Mountains. It extends between the Colle Cadibona or Bocchetta di altars, in the province of Savona and Passo della Cisa. This forms the border between the province of Parma and the Province of Massa-Carrara. The Colle di Cadibona divides the Ligurian Alps, while the Passo della Cisa divides the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines Mountains.
**The province of Cuneo (province “provincia Ed Coni” in Piedmontese dialect,”Provincia de Coni” in Occitan and “provinça de Cuneo” in the Ligurian dialect) is an Italian province of Piedmont. It has 592 203 inhabitants and is the third largest province in Italy.
