Could you imagine you're able to find nice Sioux, Navajo etc etc productions in the heart of Piemonte's alps?
Well, a couple of lovers - who happen to be also the managers of a bar along the national road crossing the Val Grande di Lanzo - use to travel extensively across those lands in Southern USA and then sell back their best findings!
Lanzo's valley are well close and easy-to-reach from Torino, but... take care not to follow themain road signs while leaving the city! You will be led through the traditional road, passing through a number of towns and seriously slowing down the trip. Use the new highway, leaving from Via Pianezza and Venaria,. instead.
Fondest memory: Once you reach Lanzo, go on until Ceres, than you have three interesting choices: Valle d'Ala, valle Grande e val Viù. I Love the Val Grande and there is where Chialamberto lies, even if I think the most lovely place is Forno Alpi Graie, at the end of the road.
