MOUNTAIN FLAVOURS

Polenta, Alpine cheeses, cold cuts and game together with the fine wines of the hills near Novara. These and other products are spread out on the tables of the valleys surrounding Lake Maggiore.

From Bettelmatt, the king of cheeses, to Parma ham, Prince of Val Vigezzo, and the black bread of Coimo, in Vigezzo Valley. Cheeses and the liver mortadella of Ossola Valley, wines from Ossola, such as the typically local wine Prunent whose presence in Ossola is historically ascertained since 1300; Margheritine, typical butter biscuits from Stresa, created by a local confectioner on the occasion of a visit of Princess Margherita of Savoy; Imperialine, typical cookies from the area of Omegna and Lake Orta, made of two thin crispy wafers with a chocolate and hazelnut filling.

But there are also other products that characterize our territory!

For example, we refer to the granite and marble quarries from which the well-known GRANITO ROSA DI BAVENO is extracted.

On the promenade, the granite monument dedicated to ‘Picassass’, the local stone cutters, pays tribute to the stone workers who have honored the name of Baveno throughout the world.

The Collegio Papio colonnades in Ascona, the Arco della Pace and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, the columns of the Opera Theatre in Paris, the St. Charles’s Church in Vienna, the Columbus Monument in New York, the Royal Palace in Bangkok are just a few examples where the famous Baveno pink granite, used as a construction material or simply as an ornament, brought national and international prestige to this charming lakeside town.
