The City of Cheese, Sausage Bra, Slow Food and the Piedmontese Baroque. A magical place in the Langhe and Roero. Located in the hills of Roero, a land of "fortresses", vineyards and castles, the city of Bra is a crossroads of history, culture and culinary excellence. Of ancient origins, has roots that sink in the neolithic age and affecting the Roman Empire and the Savoy dynasty, traces of which are still visible on the ground. Today it is a city of over 30 000 inhabitants, famous in Italy and around the world for being the home of the Slow Food movement, for its excellent sausage, for events of international openness and for being one of the cradles of the Piedmontese Baroque.

Walking through its streets and discover its squares, will not pass unnoticed the rounded facade of the town hall, the church of Santa Chiara, a masterpiece of royal Bernardo Antonio Vittone, the Trinity Church, also known as the "Beaten Smith." And then, the museums of Natural History, Art and Archaeology and the Toy and the central Via Cavour, venue, coffee and local historians, where he used to spend his days the writer Giovanni Arpino. Not to mention the Zizzola, symbol of the city, from the top of the hill Monteguglielmo, the Seer. And then, there Pollenzo, his best-known fraction, whose square is an architectural complex of buildings that recall the ancient glories of one of the private residences of the royal family. Within these ancient rooms, for some years at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in its courses involving students from all over the world, and the distinctive tower that dominates the square hosts an original Bank of the wine is stored and where some of the aged most famous cru tricolor.

Bra is also a land of good food and good wine, excellent with known and appreciated beyond national borders. Who has not heard of the famous Bra sausage, veal sausage served raw and directly authorized by the House of Savoy? Not to mention the cheese, which is named after the city itself: Bra Dop - soft and hard - delight for the palate and the senses, celebrated along with cheeses from around the world with the international event "Cheese! The forms of milk." And, again, the fresh fruits and vegetables, bread ... to end up with a sandwich "local and slow", the Mac'd Bra, which contains a single bite all flavors of the region.

A precious heritage that Bra, one of the four founders of the Italian Slow Cities movement, also values in everyday life, with a service of school meals among the most advanced in Italian, complete with quality certification ISO 9001, and the use of products kilometer zero.
