Cannubi: a small but significant discovery in the origin of the place name

vietti-sale-baroloThe insatiable human curiosity for the origins of place names still baffles me (even though I am as much of a victim of its unyielding grip as the next guy).

And sometimes, to borrow a phrase from Gertrude Stein, the quest for topographic knowledge simply reveals that a name is a name is a name.

Thanks for reading and buon weekend, yall!
