climate and soil

Typically continental, with considerable differences between seasons and between day and night temperatures, the climate is influenced by the barrier that the Maritime Alps and the Ligurian Apennines place in the way of southwesterly winds. Relative humidity is high and snow falls quite regularly, just as summer thunderstorms are fairly frequent, too. The soils are a mixture of silt and clay, evolved on top of older formations: the Clays of Lugagnano and the Sands of Asti.
