The capital city of the province of the same name, Alessandria sits in Piedmont, between the Tanaro and the Bormida Rivers about 90k from Turin. A major railway hub, the city was founded in 1168 and has been under the thumb of numerous rulers over this time. If you are into a bit of warfare this is where you can see the reenactment of the "Battle of Marengo" (think of Napoleon) every June. It was the first capital of an Italian province to be governed by a Socialist and was a tactical military target during World War II when it suffered from intense allied bombing. After all of this warring going on, the Tanaro River flooded quite a bit of the city in 1994. Coworking venues have now opened their doors to cater to Alessandria's creative locals who have no wish to leave their own homes.
Italians have creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Alessandria may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but its community of entrepreneurs now have their own space where they can mingle, connect and collaborate before running out the door to scoff their favorite risotto.
