Landscapes of taste

In the Terre dei Savoia the passing of the millennia has created an extraordinary link between nature and the work of man. The Romans in Pollenzo bred sheep; according to legend, General Stilicho defeated Alaric’s Visigoths because they mistook the vineyard poles for soldiers armed with lances. In the countryside of the Po, the Benedictine monks prayed and turned over the lands on which today peppers and medicinal herbs are cultivated. In the valleys, the Carthusians collected strawberries as long ago as a thousand years ago. Buckwheat produced scented polenta of legend. To make the bees comfortable, in the Roero they built the cà 'd le avie, real little brick houses. It seems that between one battle and another, Napoleon ate a leek omelette. Charles Albert, in his estates, bred cows, cultivated pineapples and produced grivere. Popular devotion has dedicated sanctuaries to the Madonnas of the Woods, Walnuts, Vegetable Gardens, Flowers, Alteni fields, Vineyards... It might be a coincidence, but even the fresco and stucco artists have painted in the churches and palaces triumphs of fruit and cornucopia of vegetables.
