This web site is an experimental contribution of the Vialfrè Proloco (association promoting local culture and tourism), to ongoing projects for tourism development, promoted by the Municipalities and the Associations of our territory . We have tried to acquaint you with the Piedmont territory located between the spectacular hollow of the Morainic Amphitheatre on one side and the East bank of the Orco torrent on the other and we would like to encourage you to visit our land. In spite of being only a short distance from the big cities of the North West of Italy, it features an environment little changed by human activity. Its large spaces include wild woodland, wide flatlands surrounded by beautiful mountains, evocative lakes and ponds, areas of marsh and bog and charming hamlets which are also rich in history. The value of this area of the Canavese for tourists and lovers of nature and outdoor is to be found first of all in its pathways through natural surroundings, which can be travelled on foot, by bicycle or on horseback and are accessible all the year round. Another attraction, as witnessed by the frequent passage of cyclists that are to be seen every day, is in the many surfaced routes along secondary roads with little traffic.
