Rests among the beautiful natural scenery of the Langhe, which is the historical and economic capital, Alba is a city rich in culture, history and traditions. It is the ancient Alba Pompeia, so christened by Consul Gnaeus Pompeius Strabo, but from its origins are certainly pre-roman, rich in archaeological remains and its glorious past. The city counts among its citizens illustrious men such as emperors (including the console Publio Elvio Pertinace), experts in law and history, and ministers. Alba is known for its beauties, its curious glimpses, for its renowned industries and for its gastronomic products, including the truffle and wine, sold all over the world today.
