Sassello January 2009 #14. A sense of place part 2
Located in a small pocket delimited by a river, the "Erro" a chain of low hills, "La Boiazza" was a small and wild area. Along the river runs the border between "Liguria" and "Piemonte".
The builded area grew up from nothing in the last 30 years. Mostly it is a vacation resort. The houses where raised either by small speculators or build around initial placements of caravans or small cabins. To get an idea of the geographic properties have a look here.
The area is no more populated by traditional insiders except few cases. Most of the old houses either are abandoned or have been bought by foreigners (mostly from Lombardy or Savona and Genova).
