BORGO SAN DALMAZZO
PIEDMONT - ITALY
«To the south, east and north we see the Maritime Alps, a particular environment because it is the mountain that meets the sea […]. To the east, the town of Borgo San Dalmazzo marks the beginning of the Po Valley. Few people know this. And then, behind the Italcementi plant, there is a hill called Bec Berciassa, a protohistoric site from the Iron Age; the Gesso torrent that some studies indicate as one of the most advanced port outposts of the Etruscan period. During the Roman era, when Borgo was called Pedona, this was an important crossing point between the Roman Empire and Gaul, towards Cemenelum, today’s Nice.»
