Study Description 

San Marzano Oliveto (known simply as San Marzano until 1862) is a hilltop village and parish in the Province of Asti, in the region of Piedmont (Piemonte). Located approximately half way between the larger towns of Asti and Acqui Terme, San Marzano Oliveto is part of the picturesque Monferrato area, which is famous for its apples, its truffles and of course its vineyards. The parish church, situated at the centre of this medieval town and once owned by the powerful Asinari family, is dedicated to Saint Martian (San Marziano). Like many other locations in Italy, the village history has been marked by many important political changes, dynastic rivalries, international conflicts and of course emigration to the Americas and beyond.
