Historical Outline: Cuneo and outside

Chief city of the largest Piedmont province, and for this reason called "Provincia Granda", Cuneo is a discreet city, elegant in its proud and glorious history. Of medieval origin, it was a free Municipality until the end of the 13th century, when it belonged to the Angioini, then the Saluzzo and the Visconti. Savoyard from the end of 1330, it became famous for the seven sieges it withstood between the 16th and the 17th centuries; Cuneo still possesses a border city atmosphere, as a reminiscence of the Savoy identity and the influence of nearby France. The old city, characteristically shaped as a wedge (cuneo in Italian) , retains some notable monuments of "Piedmont baroque", the Jesuit's church, the neighbourhood church of S. Ambrogio, the church of S. Croce
