Under The Foot Of The Mountains

The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, i.e., ad pedem montium, meaning “at the foot of the mountains”. Torino being the capital of Piedmont, is obviously situated under the foot of the mountains, surrounded by the western Alpine arch.
In a clear day, the alps can be seen from the city center, pretty impressive view.
