    Porticoes - typically Piedmontese?

    house with porticoes

    My employers at Assimil recommended me to go for a walk in Chivasso before taking the train back home, in order to see its typical portici. This left me quite astonished because I had always thought that porticoes were typical for my region Veneto (where they form the lower part of some buildings - have a look at my Rovigo page) and of Bologna, the city with the longest sequence of porticoes.
    When I told them about this, they smiled because they thought the same about their region! Anyway, the Chivasso porticoes are really beautiful and in better condition than those in Rovigo. However, I still think they are typical for Veneto: you will find them in every city, town and village of my region.

    This statue stands in a street in Chivasso. It portrays Blessed Angelo Carletti, who was born there in 1411 from a noble family. When he was 23, he give up his studies in law and devoted himself to God. He sold all the properties of his family and became a Franciscan in Genua. That is when he took the name of Angelo. He did a lot for the poor people and wrote some important theological works, before dying in Cuneo in 1495.
