A city in the Piedmont region of northern Italy sitting on the banks of the rivers Gesso and Stura, Cuneo is the capital of the province of the same name with a population of about 56,124 people roaming around its streets. This is a "mountain" town, as it's located near 6 mountain passes. It was founded in 1198 by intrepid souls fleeing the authority of the bishops of Asti at the time. Acquired by the Duchy of Savoy in 1382, the town became a stronghold of the expanding Savoy state. Over its history it has been besieged by France numerous times and conquered by the French during the Napoleonic Wars. It was in 1859 when the city was restored to the Kingdom of Sardinia and the unification of Italy occurred. The town was the heart of the partisan resistance during World War II when Germany occupied Italy. Today it's a city full of sights to gawk at and coworking venues where you can get a bit of work done in between mouthfuls of the town's famous Cuneo "raw" ham.
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.
Cuneo may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city where Piedmontese' cheeses and pastries make one's mouth water. Coworking venues are giving the city's inventive minds the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate without starving themselves of their traditional treats.
