Our philosophy for production is: search for taste and tradition, exaltation of perfumes, respect of nature.

This is why our expert chefs have prepared a whole range of gourmandises: fruit and vegetables in jars, sauces, cheese, salamis, extra jams, delicacies, sweets, wines, grappa, liqueurs. They are all very natural, with no added preservatives, colours or flavours, rich in taste and fully natural.

Location

Locanda La Posta antically called “della Posta Reale”, has been in existence since the beginning of the 17th century (1600a.d.) when it was called “La Posta Reale” (The Regal Posta). In those days, in fact, royal coaches used to stop at the Locanda to let their important guests rest and savour the delicacies of the chef, while the tired horses were changed.

In 1804, Mr Vassalli, an Italian abbot and very important scientist, came to Cavour with the new instrument he had invented to measure the height of the Rocca hill, which is very close to the Locanda. He left memories of his stay on several books, preciously kept in a library in Luxembourg, where he wrote he had measured la Rocca from a room at the second floor of La Posta®. During the centuries, the Genovesio family has given hospitaliy to many famous characters from the field of politics, economics and entertainment.

Let’s remember for example the statesman who favoured the unity of Italy, the Count of Cavour, the first prime Minister of united Italy, Giovanni Giolitti, her Royal Highness, Queen Paola Ruffo di Calabria, famous writers such as Edmondo De Amicis, journalists, actors and actresses, and so on. After the Second World War, the Genovesios have been organizing the renowed International Big Persons Meeting. Every two years, this uncommon event gathers big men and women, from all over the world. They come to Cavour not only to run for the title of Miss and Mister World Big but also especially to savour a typical Piedmontese cuisine and meet with friends in a relaxed and traditional athmosphere.
