Chiuduno, Home Sweet Home
Chiuduno is where I grew up and where my family still lives. This enchanted little town is located in the Province of Bergamo in the Italian region of Lombardy. It is about 60 km northeast of Milano and about 15 km southeast of Bergamo.
It is a really small town. Its population reaches just about 5,000 inhabitants. It is a prosperous agricultural land full of vineyards that produce high quality wines. Just to give a little history note, the name Chiuduno is thought to be of Gaulish origins. It was originally “Claudun” and then became “Claudunum” later on during the roman domination. The term “dun” in the Gaulish language means “hill”. Since the Guals populated this region as early as 600 BC, it is believed that Chuiduno is a very ancient town.
