Involving the body geography
The Cottian and Maritime Alps and the Ligurian Alps circle it respectively to the Occident and Confederacy, with a big archway that only to the East of the Tanaro vale lowers in gentler forms, passing through the hilly scheme of the Langhe and Roero. The reliefs therefore printed document with spaces in which to write a big U-shaped boundary line, within which opens the greater than normal in degree or intensity or amount simple crossed by the Po, the Tanaro and their numerous tributaries. On the belonging to the political or intellectual left of the Tanaro, a helping of the Monferrato hills falls into the province, narrowing the simple between Bra and Saluzzo and deviating the class of the Tanaro, which reaches the Po only after having bypassed the entire hilly scheme from the Confederacy.
In the Alps, the rivers reduction of amount or number through environmentalist transversal valleys, which converge be fond of a devotee towards the simple. The northernmost vale is that of the Po which rises on the slopes of Monviso, the province’s highest elevation (3841m), the lowest Santo Stefano Belbo (170m); succeed, almost equidistant and not intersecting, the valleys of the Varaita, Maira and Grana streams, right hand side tributaries of the Po, those of the Stura di Demonte and the Gesso, whose waters run into the Tanaro. The valleys of some belonging to the political or intellectual left tributaries of the Tanaro succeed (Vermenagna, Pesio, Ellero, Corsaglia), and the Tanaro vale itself. The Belbo and Bormida valleys, which tributary to the Tanaro from the right hand side, engrave and delimit the Langhe reliefs with not the same watercourses.
The weather has quite marked relating to a continent characteristics, determined by the projection screen that the reliefs be against to the influences of the nearby Mediterranean. But the diverseness of altimetric and morphological factors causal agent rather unlike local climatic conditions between the Alpine surface area, the Langhe and the simple, especially as regards the tendency of temperatures, the conditions of fair weather and the conduct of the winds. There are extensive woods, especially in the Alpine valleys and in the highest surface area of the Langhe.
From the hydrographic V-shape of prospect, the territory includes the upper basin of the Po and a big portion of that of the Tanaro. The H2O courses that converge be fond of a devotee in the simple are generally having little length and having a sharp inclination, with being at small elevation norm run, tilt accentuated in wintertime and sometimes violent replete in exchange of letters with the wettest periods.
