The Provincia di Asti, established in 1935, has 117 municipalities (data updated to the year 2023).


Food and wine and typical products

The largest number of economic activities in the province of Asti are engaged in agriculture, manufacturing, and trade.

Viticulture is a source of pride for the Asti area: the finest DOC and DOCG wines are produced here.

The presence of the food industry is also important, both in the transformation activity and in the processing of typical local products.

The automotive and electromechanical industries, represented mainly by small or medium-sized enterprises, are well established in the Asti area.

Particularly relevant is the economic importance represented by the construction industry and handicrafts.

The Astigiano is increasingly establishing itself as a privileged tourist destination, and this affirmation is reflected in the constant growth of the commercial, hotel, and restaurant sectors.

To be seen

On June 22, 2014, the wine-growing landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Lands of extraordinary beauty that more and more tourists, including foreigners, want to visit and live in.

Food and wine excellence are accompanied by the wonders of Nature, often still uncontaminated, and a historical-artistic heritage of absolute appeal.

The Astigiano is a land of fine grape varieties such as Moscato, Barbera, Grignolino, Nebbiolo and Dolcetto, which give rise to wines with inimitable aromas.

Among the typical products we remember, without claiming to be exhaustive: the hunchback thistle of Nizza Monferrato, the “square” pepper of Asti, the asparagus of Vinchio, the “Divina” apple of San Marzano Oliveto, the “Mora” cherry of Revigliasco d'Asti, the peaches of Refrancore, the Robiola of Roccaverano, the amaretti of Mombaruzzo, the “round and gentle” hazelnut from Piedmont, cured meats and beef from the Piedmontese breed, and, of course, the diamond of the table, the white truffle.

Speaking of jewels, the Province of Asti also has its own, and it is the Campeggio di Roccaverano (Roccaverano Campsite), a summer camp for minors in the heart of the Langa of Asti.

Finally, a special mention goes to Asti, the provincial capital, which attracts tourists from all over the world thanks to celebrated events such as the Palio di Asti and the Festival delle Sagre.

Festivals and fairs characterize the ever-rich calendar of events hosted in the 117 municipalities of the Astigiano at any time of the year.
