There is no need to present this giant of Alps. People of Piedmont can admire it every day, Italians know that it is the father of river Po.

In fact, from the Po Valley, its imposing pyramid shape stands majestically, almost from the middle of nowhere, making the Monviso visible and recognizable even from far away.
