  • GEOGRAPHY - The Langhe is a historical region of Piedmont, located between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti, bordering with other historical regions of Piedmont, namely Monferrato and Roero, and consisting of an extensive hilly system defined by the Tanaro rivers, Belbo, Bormida di Millesimo and Bormida di Spigno. It is divided into: Lower Langa: area between the Tanaro to the north and the Belbo to the south, with altitudes below 600 m; is the area of ​​Alba, wines and truffles (renowned the white of Alba). Alta Langa: it is the area near the border with Liguria, with a maximum altitude of 750 m and a peak of 896 m in the municipality of Mombarcaro; here dominate the woods and the cultivation of the prized variety of hazelnuts "tonda gentile delle Langhe". Langa Astigiana: area in the south of the province of Asti, with Canelli to the north and the river Bormida di Spigno to the east, with a peak of 851 m in the municipality of Serole.
  • HISTORY - The Neolithic arrives during the 5th millennium BC In the Iron Age dominate the Ligurian tribes of the Epanteri and Stazielli, which, following the Gallic migrations, form the Celtolian culture. They were subjugated by the Romans in 179 BC, but only with Augustus can one speak of a true process of Romanization. During the Carolingian period they were part of the Marca Aleramica, whose first owner, Aleramo, contributed to liberate Piedmont and western Liguria from the Muslim pirates. Some territories remained in direct possession of the Aleramici under the authority of the Milan Senate until the eighteenth century, when they passed to the Duchy of Savoy with the treaty of Utrecht (1713) at the end of the Spanish succession war. Between the nineteenth century and the beginning of the next, the Langhe experienced a strong deterioration and extreme poverty (as the testimonies gathered by Nuto Revelli in Il mondo dei vinti tell us), followed by a progressive depopulation in favor of the industrial cities ( above all Turin and Savona). During the Second World War, the Langhe were the scene of the Resistance struggle, admirably described in the novels of Alba Beppe Fenoglio.
