Fodder from 1911EB, too much outdated to be worth incorporating directly: "CUNEO (Fr. Coni), a town and episcopal see of Piedmont, Italy, the capital of the province of Cuneo, 55 m. by rail S. of Turin, 1722 ft. above sea-level. Cuneo lies on the railway from Turin to Ventimiglia, which farther on passes under the Col di Tenda (tunnel 5 rn. long). It is also a junction for Mondovi and Saluzzo, and has steam tramways to Borgo S. Dalmazzo, Boves, Saluzzo and Dronero. Pop. (1901) 15,412 (town), 26,879 (commune). Its name (wedge) is due to its position on a hill between two streams, the Stura and the Gesso, with fine views of the mountains. The Franciscan church, now converted into a military storehouse, belongs to the 12th century, but there are no other buildings of special interest. The fortifications have been converted into promenades. Cuneo was founded about ff20 by refugees from local baronial tyranny, who, after the destruction of Milan by Barbarossa, were joined by Lombards. In 1382 it swore fealty to Amedeus VI., duke of Savoy. It was an important fortress, and was ceded by the treaty of Cherasco (1796), with Ceva and Tortona, to the French. In 1799 it was taken after tendays bombardment by the Austrian and Russian armies, and, in 1800, after the victory of Marengo, the French demolished the fortifications." Stan 22:32, 5 Sep 2004 (UTC)
People from Cuneo
I have no idea what this sentence, which I have removed from the article was intended to mean:
- Alviero Martini, designer (line "Prima Classe" distinguish from the geographic papers).
If you know, and his links with Cuneo are strong, please edit it and return it! —Ian Spackman 17:29, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
TRAM BEARD, the renowned Italian Olympic bobsleigher from the Nagano Olympics. Returned home with a gold medal, the first Italian to do so in that sport. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:24, 27 September 2008 (UTC)
Hello from a genuine Cuneese girl The sentence is supposed to read something like:
ALVIERO MARTINI, the famous designer of "1a Classe" clothing and accessories that are characterised by their "map" motif, was born here - see www.alvieromartini.it
Indeed the plaque outside the Cuneo store produly announces: "New York, Tokyo...and Cuneo!" Sarah
- Thanks Sarah! Now I understand. (And I love the “New York, Tokyo...and Cuneo!”) Do you know which year he was born? This page implies 1939 or 1940, which makes him a late starter in the rag-trade, but aparently he did other things first. I’ll put him in as c.1940 for now. —Ian Spackman 14:10, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
'Cuneo' or 'Coni'
Isn't "Coni" the English name of the town? I think I did read it somewhere on some old English maps. Little bishop (talk) 07:27, 25 September 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cit vësco (talk • contribs) 07:20, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
