welcome to Piemonte/Piedmont.
The Regional Council, that is the elected Legislative Assembly of Piemonte, has provided this website as a source of information, a sort of ready reference containing an overview of Piemonte’s history and its economy and culture, as well as details of public services and the main tourist attractions in the region.
You can discover the highlights of Piemonte and its capital Turin, Italy’s first national capital – indeed 2011 was the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy – and explore their rich architectural heritage, testament to centuries of history and creativity.
Strategically located between northern European and the Mediterranean, in the heart of one of Europe’s most developed areas, Piemonte plays a key role in the Italian economy, combining industrial tradition with a strong drive for innovation, a propensity for research with quality of life, and its artistic heritage with some of the world’s finest food and wine. Confirmation of this fascinating region’s strongly competitive assets comes from the hundreds of foreign companies who have decided to invest here.
The Regional Council of Piemonte hopes that this website will prompt you to explore the region and provide further insight for those who already know it.
Enjoy your visit.
President, Regional Council of Piemonte
