Italy is the world's second largest producer of hazelnuts after Turkey. In Piedmont, cultivation is concentrated in the provinces of Cuneo, Asti and Alessandria in the hill country of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. Here the hazelnut variety Tonda Gentile Trilobata is grown. Confectioners love Piedmont hazelnuts for their excellent taste and smell, their durability and good peelability. Similar to wine, they have a protected geographical mark called Indicazione Geografica Protetta. The Piedmontese think their hazelnuts are the best in the world

This farm is located near Dogliani. Hazelnut trees can bee seen in the background.

The Po Valley is a major geographical feature of Northern Italy. It extends approximately 650 km (400 mi) in an east-west direction, with an area of 46,000 km2 (18,000 square miles) including its Venetic extension not actually related to the Po river basin; it runs from the Western Alps to the Adriatic Sea. The flatlands of Veneto and Friuli are often considered apart since they do not drain into the Po, but they effectively combine into an unbroken plain, making it the largest in Southern Europe.

About 50% of European rice production comes from Italy, and 90% of that from the floodplain of the fertile Po Valley. This thunderstorm came up near Vercelli.

Manarola is the second-smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists, with a population of 353. Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. Manarola's primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetrà, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region.

In recent years, Manarola and its neighboring towns have become popular tourist destinations, particularly in the summer months. Tourist attractions in the region include a famous walking trail between Manarola and Riomaggiore and hiking trails in the hills and vineyards above the town.

Corvus is a widely distributed genus of medium-sized to large birds in the family Corvidae. The genus includes species commonly known as crows, ravens and rooks; there is no consistent distinction between "crows" and "ravens".
Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use, but also tool construction. Thus, crows are now considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals with an encephalization quotient equal to that of many non-human primates.

Crows gather in large communal roosts numbering between 200 and tens of thousands of individuals during nonbreeding months, particularly in the winter. These gatherings tend to happen near large food sources such as garbage dumps and shopping centers. This group of crows lives near Niedertraubling.

The Cinque Terre ("Five Lands") is a coastal area within Liguria, in the northwest of Italy. It lies in the west of La Spezia Province, and comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the back country there exist many, almost abandoned small villages, which are equally interesting and hardly visited. This picture comes from the mountain village of Lavaggiorosso near Levanto.
