Piedmonte is the second largest region of Italy located to the north west of the country. It's largest city and the original capital to Italy is Turin, the bustling business and culture hub of northern Italy. Turin is covered in a mixture of 16th and 18th century renaissance, baroque and neo classical architecture. Fans of Juventus FC, one of Italy’s best football teams, will swarm the nearby architecture. Moving away from the cities, Piedmonte is known for its connection to the Alps, almost half of the region is covered by mountains making it one of Italy’s top skiing destinations. The geography of the region generates great agricultural farm land for vegetation to flourish. It is best known for its growing of grapes and production of wine including the famous Barolo. Other than wine, the region is known to produce a vast amount of Italian risotto rice on the flatter plains because of the drain off from the river Po.
