Cherasco’s great markets
The small town of Cherasco is well-known for its markets selling antiques and collectors’ items. Visitors flock to these events, held at various times of the year, to buy old books, antique furniture, music and curios in general. The streets of the historic town centre are shut off to traffic to create a huge exhibition area.

“Pallone elastico”
Fun, entertainment, folklore, age-old tradition. “Pallone elastico” (literally “elastic ball”) is a game that originated in the Alba district. Athletic strength, ability to move quickly, a quick eye, experience and skill are fundamental qualities for success.
The main venue is the “Mermet” court, or “sferisterio”, which is more than one hundred years old and is located in Alba’s historic centre.

The night of the “Masche”

If you happen to meet any of the village\'s older inhabitants, ask them if they know the “masche”. You can be sure they’ll have some interesting stories to tell. But don’t ask “how can that be possible?\", because certain stories have very little to do with reason…
In the Piedmontese dialect a “masca” is a witch or sorceress, traditionally believed to have supernatural powers. They were held responsible for negative or unaccountable events, and often persecuted.
Although in many villages the “masche” are just a distant memory, in Sinio they are the protagonists for a whole night: “the night of the masche”, held on the evening of 14th August each year with artists, jugglers, music and lots of legends…
