6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The program will start at 6:30pm with a tasting of some of the most renowned Piemonte’s wines accompanied by paired appetizers. The presentation will continue with an overview of this culturally rich region that is tucked away by mountains on three sides. The Piemonte region showcases some of Italy’s finest gastronomy. Professor Spedaliere will take you on a virtual journey through the region discovering unique medieval towns and villages, where its historic castles, and cobblestones streets make it seem as though time has never stopped. Piemonte is also home to Sordevolo, a village where, every 5 years since the beginning of the 18th Century, a Passion Play is performed by the local villagers. Our virtual journey concludes in Turin, where visitors can explore more of Piemonte’s culinary fare at Eataly, but also learn about Turin’s intriguing history, Italy’s first capital and royal residence, named “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.
