The earth, the anger, the absence to tell the stories of the daily reality of a people over the last century and of the painful and sweet relationship with their land and, therefore, with their identity.
At the end of the show, it will be possible to have an aperitif or have dinner in the Pian del’Arma refuge.

Mixed Boiled Lunch

Bollito Misto is one of the most important dishes of Piedmontese cuisine.
It is a rich and substantial second course made up of various cuts of meat which are boiled for a long time and then served together very hot with the addition of boiled vegetables and the inevitable “bagnetti” (sauces).
Making a good Piedmontese-style Bollito Misto requires a certain amount of care and a lot of time.
We want you to try ours, we’ll be waiting for you for lunch!
