The rich, rural landscape of the village of Montelupo and its surrounding area is part of a little known region called Le Langhe, in the province of Piemonte in the north-west corner of Italy. Its people are closely linked to the land through family history or current lifestyle. Many feel passionate about the place and have a strong sense of identity with this region. I have travelled here frequently since 2007. I am totally infatuated by this place.
