Piedmont is a region located in the northwest corner of Italy bordering the regions of Emilia-Romagna, Liguria, Aosta Valley and Lombardy and the countries of France and Switzerland. Piedmont, Italy is said to be similar to its neighbors of France and Switzerland because it has no coastline and neither do either of these countries. Piedmont consists of eight provinces: Biella, Novara, Vercelli, Cuneo, Alessandria, Verbano Cusio Ossola, Asti and Turin, the regional capital. Piedmont, or “pied monte,” which means “at the foot of the mountains” in Italian and truly reflects its name because this region is 43% mountainous. Piedmont, Italy is surrounded by mountains, including the Alps, the Apennines, Gran Paradiso and Monte Rosa.
