Vesime

Vesime is a particular place, of woods and vineyards, but also of factories and craftsmen laboratories.

A town with two sides: modern one, of nouses lined along the road to Cortemilia, and an old one, a medieval one, fascinating and rich of mistery and discoveries, built around the main square.

Here are the signs of over a thoudsand years’ history, from the Roman findings to the statues, from the gothis portals to the renaissance frescos in the Battuti church, from the neogothic church to the stone houses, typical of the Langhe, that still show their original features.

But Vesime is also a country town, with many chapels spread in the country along with the memories of the recent partisan war against the Germans, when its airport was one of the most important ones in Piedmont.

History

It has been anciently inhabited by a Liguri Stazielli tribe and the Romans. 

When the Roman empire fell, the Vesime valley was invaded by the Barbarians and destroyed.

It was later owned by many different families (Bonifacio del Vasto, the Del Carretto, the Scarampi, the Biandrate, the Gonzaga), until in 1708 it was acquired by Amedeo II di Savoia.
