Piedmont, where sports can be experienced in every season
With its unique variety of mountains, rivers, lakes, and hills where you can practice any sport, Piedmont has the full energy of a true land of champions. From the routes loved by legendary Fausto Coppi and Costanzo Girardengo to the modern Piedmont heroes on two wheels, Filippo Ganna and Elisa Longoborghini. From the glories of the champions of the '70s national alpine ski team, the Valanga Azzurra, and the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, to those of the 2021 world champions Marta Bassino and Matteo Eydallin. And then the excellence of Francesco Molinari, the first Italian to win a golf major after conquering the 147th British Open.
Piedmont has 6,391 sports facilities - where football, equestrian sports, tennis, swimming, golf, bocce (the Italian version of bowls), gymnastics and winter sports stand out; 16,000 km of trekking and cycle routes, including the 900 km of the Great Crossing of the Alps through Piedmont Alps; 1,350 km of slopes and over 50 ski areas where you can practice snowboarding, ski mountaineering and climbing on crests and frozen waterfalls, walking with snowshoes, ice-skating and cross-country skiing. And then, in addition to a countless number of events, a programme of major international championships, including Nitto ATP Finals 2021-2025, Winter Universiade 2025, Special Olympics World Winter Games 2025 and Sestriere World Ski Championships in 2029. In Piedmont, sport is an experience to be lived in every season!
