The Canavese area is rich in historical and cultural interests, and it is close to the city of Ivrea, the industrial city of the 20th century, and UNESCO World Heritage. Long before Silicon Valley, Ivrea was the beating heart of the new industrial revolution: the personal computer.
Ivrea is located on the Ivrea Morainic Amphitheater (AMI), one of the world’s most important sites of glacier origin. The AMI extends over an area of approximately 530 square kilometers and was generated during the Quaternary period by the erosion and accumulation action of the Balteo glacier.
Ivrea is also known worldwide for its Carnival. Tradition and innovation go together to represent and celebrate the freedom of Ivrea from tyranny and oppression; stories and legends go back to the Middle Ages and pass from the Napoleonic period. The Battle of the Oranges and the Bone-fire are two of the symbols of the revolution against despotism. Be ready to be overwhelmed by colors, scents, music, and cheerfulness.
