The name Roero comes from the Roero family who dominated this area of Piedmont for a number of centuries during the Middle Ages, but as geographic identity is quite a recent term.
Starting from the seventies Roero has identified the hilly region situated north of Alba in the north-east corner of the province of Cuneo in Piedmont, north-west Italy. The river Tanaro marks its southern border, dividing it from the Langhe.
Twenty-four towns today are included in Roero.
Here we have the photo gallery of my first trip in Roero many years ago, visiting a friend of mine that lives and works there.
I was amazed by the colors the images and the geometry of fruit trees gently folded and trimmed by the work of men in complete equilibrium with nature.
