Photographer's Note

Saluzzo in Piemonte was a metropolis in medieval Italy, due to some trading /transport routes leading over the Alpine passes from France. A Marchese ruled the area. It has been preserved very nicely, and lives a quiet life at the foot of the Maritime Alps, surrounded by fruit plantations. The town is often used as the scene for films i.e. about 2nd ww. The place is so close to look as it did in the 40ties.
There are mostly Italian tourists ... the food is exelent in this area. And the vine district, Langhe, is quite close
