Shrine Of The Blessed Virgin of Boden, built in 1743 and expanded several times in the course of the following centuries, is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Boden. From http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornavasso#Santuario_Madonna_del_Boden Santuario Madonna del Boden Il Santuario, è l'ampliamento di un Oratorio costruito sui resti di una precedente cappelletta, nota per l'immagine della Vergine dipinta sul muro che veniva venerata dagli abitanti della zona. Secondo la tradizione la notte del 7 settembre 1528 una pastorella di Ornavasso, dopo aver portato al pascolo le sue pecore, si addormentò. Al suo risveglio tutte le pecore erano scappate. Messasi, nel buio, alla loro ricerca cadde in un dirupo; spaventata chiese aiuto alla Madonna. Una luce, proveniente dalla cappelletta del Boden, le permise di ritrovare la via, e il suo gregge che si era radunato presso l'Oratorio. Da allora l'8 settembre si iniziò a celebrare la festa della Madonna del Boden, o dei Miracoli. Per accogliere i pellegrini, verso la metà del XVII l'oratorio viene ampliato e sono aggiunti il coro, le due cappelle, la sacrestia e un portico. Le navate laterali e il restauro dell'altare, risalgono invece alla metà del secolo successivo. Oggi l'edificio presenta una pianta a tre navate divise da quattro archi. Il dipinto della cappelletta originaria, in seguito agli effetti deterioranti del tempo, venne sostituito da una statuetta, alta 30 cm, raffigurante la Madonna Incoronata http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ornavasso#Santuario_Madonna_del_Boden

This is an overview of Piedmont

The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium, i. e. "ad pedem montium", meaning "at the foot of the mountains": Piedmont, whose capital is Turin, is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, including Monviso, where Po river rises, and Monte Rosa. It borders France, Switzerland and the Italian regions of Aosta Valley, Lombardy, Liguria and Emilia Romagna.

Its history was linked for centuries to Savoy dynasty: since 1046 Piedmont was part of County of Savoy, raised to Duchy of Savoy in 1416, evolved in the eighteenth century into the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia. The role of Piedmont for Italy's unification is comparable to the role of Prussia for Germany and his army was the engine of the unification process, ended with the creation of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. The presence of Savoy in its territory bequeathed a large number of castles and residences.

Lowland Piedmont is a fertile agricultural region, producing wheat, rice and maize and is one of the great winegrowing areas in Italy. The region contains major industrial centres: FIAT automobile plants in Turin, Ferrero's chocolate factories in Alba, tissue and silk manufactories in Biella, in Ivrea Olivetti was an important technology center, publishing in Turin and Novara.
