I might be biased about the Piazzo because I was born in Biella, though I left for more than 25 years. Why? Because I think it is the most beautiful part of Biella. It has kept all its medieval charme and mistery that many other...More

Mid-September of 2014, I was fortunate enough to be in northwest Italy (Piemonte or Piedmont) about 1 ½ hours from Milan in a small city called Biella. Biella stands by the front range of the Italian Alps and just below Oropa, the famous shrine and...More

When in Biella you cannot miss a visit to the Piazzo quarter. You can reach him through a tram that in less than 5 minutes will bring you from the center or walking one of the different "RIVA" kind of road with stairs. The Piazzo...More
