The Piedmontese municipalities belonging to the Associazione Bandiere Arancioni of the Italian Touring Club rise to 31. With the recognition received from Arona, in the Novara area, Entraque and Guarene, in the Cuneo area, Piedmont becomes the second most orange region in Italy.
The "orange flag" is the environmental tourism recognition of the Italian Touring Club which, since 1998, has rewards municipalities that boast a valuable historical, cultural, environmental heritage, as well as offering a quality experience to tourists.
"This recognition demonstrates how rich Piedmont is rich in an important cultural, architectural and food and wine heritage that does not stop at the traditional tourist circuits, but also involves the villages spread all over the territory.A characteristic that is a strong point and is the result of the important choral work of valorization done to date, to which the Orange Flags of the Italian Touring Club contribute with their value as a quality mark and as a tool for the work of local authorities ".
This was expressed by Antonella Parigi, Councilor for Culture and Tourism of the Piedmont Region.
