The Municipality of San Paolo Solbrito was founded in 1928 by the merger of the former Municipalities of San Paolo della Valle and Solbrito.
Throughout its history, more than a thousand years, its economy has always been based on agriculture (the organic one is constantly growing), even if the craft and commercial activities, necessary to satisfy the needs of the population living in progressive and constant increase.
In fact, there are many families in Turin and the large inhabited centers of the first and second belt that choose to move to San Paolo Solbrito, a country that has grown thanks to a careful single-family residential building, balanced and respectful of nature and traditional construction offers to all citizens and tourists a peaceful environment, far from the noise, pollution and chaotic traffic of the city.
There are various opportunities for excursions both for skilled seekers of precious and fragrant “trifole”, white and black truffles - with which to flavor the traditional dishes of local cuisine, and for all nature lovers who want to try their hand along the various country walking trails, on horseback or in mountain biking in a pristine environment where you can still see wild animals such as foxes, badgers, wild boars, buzzards and unusual botanical species.
Do not forget the excellent drinking water offered by three large wells, more than 100 meters deep and located in the valley of the Rio Triversola that feed a district of 6 Municipalities, with over 10,000 users.
