Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato is the official name of a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising “five distinct wine-growing areas with outstanding landscapes” plus the Castle of Grinzane Cavour in the region of Piedmont, Italy.
The site, which extends over hilly areas of Langhe and Montferrat, is one of the most important wine producing zones in Italy.
Located in the center of Piedmont region (North West of Italy), the site is inscribed as a “cultural landscape”, since it is a result of the combined work of nature and man. The site is inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List thanks to the outstanding value of its wine culture, which has shaped the landscape over the centuries.
For everyone working to promote Monferrato, as we have been doing at PianoEchos for over a decade, through quality music, UNESCO recognition really is great news!
“PianoEchos” was created to renew the ties between music and the land. To open the doors of churches, palaces, castles, monasteries, libraries and villas, and let the music of extraordinary artists and young talent from all over the world resonate (to date we have hosted musicians from 20 nations and 4 continents).
An imaginative, ambitious and forward-thinking idea. To create, in the heart of Monferrato, an event entirely dedicated to the piano; to bring to these hills the best of Italian and international piano music, a kind of musical laboratory which significantly enriches the cultural life and tourism of the area.
