"COVO" IS ... TREVILLE (AL)
(THE YEARS OF THE "COVO")
Many thanks to Bobby Tanzilo for his help in the translation of this section
(Treville - photos by GP Morano, 2005)
The Covo was "born" in the '70s in Treville,
a small italian village of the Province of Alessandria.
Treville is located on one of the highest hills (310 m)
of the Low Monferrato, near Casale Monferrato
It's a land of wine, sun and "jarticioch"....
An old popular song often sung by our grandmothers
was dedicated to its artichokes (see netx pages)
"What you find in this village without fun,
with few young people, with four houses,
hot in summer and very cold and foggy in winter...
and with too many mosquitos... "
For us, hardened lovers, in the '70s had become
"The center of the world"
