Your webpage was listed at the end of an email to the mailing list I belong to. I am sure you will receive many messages from the members. I am very impressed and happy with your pages. My grandparents were from the Canavese . I loved your whole site and copied several of the receipts - thank you so much.

What a fun and informative site!! We are Americans who have had the priviledge of living several places overseas, including France, England and at present Australia. During our time in Europe, we spent three glorious ski holidays in Sansicario and thus had an opportunity to see a part of your area. We love Italy!!Our 11 year old son is learning Italian at school and has to do a project comparing a Northern and a Southern region. He chose Piemento and Puglia. Your website has given us so much valuable information, I only wish we could find one like it for Puglia!Thank you very much and keep up the GOOD work!!

I live in Holland since more than 3 years now. I was surfing the Internet wondering if my beloved Villanova was there as well (I guess I was homesick...) I found this great site build by friends. It's brilliant and very pleasant and informative! Well done!

Claudia and Pippo, Thanks for the wonderful website. You've done a remarkable job putting it together without much background in computers. It was great to tour through your Italy and wait for the day when I can visit it in reality. Thanks! Juliet

Ciao, Claudia and Pippo! I've just been enjoying your pictures. You have added some since I last looked. An e-pal of mine asked where she could find some good Italian recipes, so I told her.....right here! Just thinking about them is making me hungry. I think I will go have a (very) early lunch. It's 11:30 a.m.!Love, Skipper

Beautiful site. My maternal grandfather was born in Mercenasco. My grandmother was born here but her family was from Mercenasco, also. I can still remember the zabaglione, stuffed peaches, stuffed onions and polenta my grandmother made. My husband spent time in Trieste in '53-'54 as part of the "TRUST" unit. He talks about going back to visit so maybe a trip is in our future. I agree with the person who said your site is remarkable for being a first try! Thank you for taking the big plunge into cyberspace! It's a wonderful site to visit.

My family and I just returned from the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. We are planning a trip to Italy in 2006 for the Winter Olympic games in Turino. I was wondering if you had any advice or suggestions for us. We would appreciate ANY information you would give to us. Your site is one of the best websites I have ever seen. It was very informational and interesting to read. I have book marked the site and will share it with my family. Thank you for a glimpse into your lives! ~ Alicia

What a pleasure to read, & see your web page. I was adopted as a child, but have found I have strong Italian background. Now I know why I have always drawn to that culture...people, food, etc. Thank you for sharing this with me. I have always wanted to speak Italian, but don't. I suppose all these natural tendancies come out in our genes. For now, Gwendolyn

Claudia and Pippo,What a great ideal for a website, expecially a family from Piedmont, about their history, family, food, and recipes, etc. I've been looking for a website like this for years. My grandparents on my mothers side were from San Giorgio Canavese and Aglie areas of Piedmonte. I have a question, I hope you can answer, that I have been researching for years with no answers. Lard curing of Salami --My uncle used to make salami and after a period of time the salami was put in crocks and covered with lard. Unbelievable as this may sound, I was reading a cookbook today titled, The Complete Italian Cookbook by Carlo Bernasconi and Christian Teubner, and in the salumi section it described my uncles salami. "The Piedmontese Salam d' Induja (Indugio), a pork salami, preserved in a pot of lard". No other details were listed but that is the first time I have ever seen mention of the lard cure in print. What I am interested in, is the history of the lard curing and the correct steps and procedures to do this process properly. I would appreciate any help on this lard curing question that you can find out. Uncle Charlie died in 1965 and I never had the opportunity to learn the lard curing process. Who knew there was life after your teenage years? I hope you have time to answer. My Best to you and your family, Gene DeRubeis

After spending time in Piedmont the summer of 2001, I truly enjoyed making a second trip there, via your web pages. The pictures are lovely, and brought back so many memories of the time I spent in Val d'Aosta.Thank you for this gift of love.

Dear Claudia and Pippo,Your web site has grown so since I last visited it. I especially love the family album with all the pictures of your children and homes. I must be spending much more time here. Thanks so much for all your hard work.
