In February 2020 I had just finished writing my "Guida alle Langhe in bicicletta" in Italian, when the World pandemic exploded, and unfortunately Italy was the first to be hit. My plans to print and distribute the book immediately collapsed, I had to wait for better times. But then I changed my mind, I had to react to this s**t, so I decided to translate and print the book in English too, making it (it's not an exaggeration!) the first English written guide to the Langhe for "slow" tourists.
