Dedicated to Susa's Mayor
Susa is a city in Piedmont, Italy. It is situated on a tributary of the Po River, at the foot of the Cottian Alps, 51 km (32 mi) west of Turin.
Susa (ancient: Segusium) was founded by the Gauls. In the 1st century AD it became freely part of the Roman Empire. Remains of the Roman city have been founded in the excavations of the central Savoy Square.
In the Middle and Modern ages Susa maintained an importance as a hub on the roads connecting southern France to Italy. During the Napoleonic era a new road, the Via Napoleonica, was built.
