Piedmont

Piedmont is home to Italy's former capital, Turin, and former royal family, the Savoy. It is also home to Fiat, the country's largest private manufacturer. Other industrial notables include Ferrero, the confectionary group behind the Nutella bread spread and Tic Tac mints, and Lavazza coffee. Its wines like Barolo and Barbaresco are world-famous. Textiles were also an important industry before the onslaught of Asian competitors, with luxury brands such as Loro Piana and Piacenza Cashmere.
