La citta e' situata all'inizio della Val Malenco, alla confluenza tra il fiume Adda e il torrente Mallero e conta circa 25.000 abitanti. Nella sua provincia si trovano importanti stazioni sciistiche come Bormio, Livigno, Chiesa in Valmalenco e Ponte di Legno. Il nome Sondrio deriva dalla parola longobarda Sundrium che significa proprieta specifica esclusiva: Sundrium era il terreno lavorato direttamente dal padrone o con l'aiuto di servi, era cioe' un terreno di uomini liberi. Sondrio ha antiche origini romane e nei primi secoli della sua storia subi il dominio di diverse signorie come i Capitanei di Vizzola, i Visconti e gli Sforza che la governarono fino all'avvento dei francesi. Dal 1512 al 1797 fu sotto il governo dei Grigioni al termine del quale divento capoluogo della Valtellina. Durante il periodo napoleonico entro a far parte della Repubblica Cisalpina e nel XIX secolo combatte' duramente contro il Regno del Lombardo Veneto per acquisire la propria indipendenza ed annettersi al Regno d'Italia. Da vedere: Museo Valtellinese di Storia e Arte: e' ospitato dal 1947 presso il Palazzo Sassi de' Lavizzari, in centro a Sondrio. Conserva collezioni archeologiche, storiche, artistiche ed etnografiche e mobili antichi provenienti da case valtellinesi (e' presente una 'Stua', sala rivestita in legno del Seicento). Non mancano reperti archeologici e cimeli storici, affreschi, statue lignee, esempi di oreficeria e arte sacra conservati in un primo nucleo di quello che diventera Museo Diocesano. Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio: ha una superficie di 134.620 ettari e si estende su quattro province: Sondrio, Brescia, Trento e Bolzano. Il settore lombardo e', per superficie, il maggiore del Parco. Il Parco dello Stelvio comprende l'intero massiccio montuoso dell'Ortles-Cevedale con le sue vallate laterali e si unisce al Parco Nazionale Svizzero dell'Engadina attraverso l'Alta Valle dell'Adda ed il Lago di Livigno. Il parco e' stato istituito nel 1935 e ampliato nel 1977 allo scopo di proteggere e conservare l'ambiente alpino. L'enorme ricchezza di flora (ad esempio conifere, abeti) e fauna (in particolare camosci, stambecchi, marmotte) ne fa uno dei principali parchi europei. Tirano: a circa 30 km da Sondrio, Tirano e' situata a 450 metri di altitudine, dista circa 1 km dal confine svizzero e 70 km da St. Moritz, da cui e' collegata con il trenino 'Bernina Express'. Tirano e' celebre per il Santuario della Beata Vergine, eretto sul luogo dove ci fu un'apparizione della Madonna nel 1504. Il Santuario a tre navate a croce latina e' il piu bell'esempio del Rinascimento in Valtellina.

The production area is located in the Western Trentino (Giudicarie, especially Val Rendena and Val di Ledro), partly within the Adamello-Brenta. And 'one of the oldest cheeses of the alpine mountain and from January 26, 2004 can boast of enrollment in the register of protected designations of origin, which protects the quality within national borders and Europe. At one time it was produced in a traditional way the farms ('munt', or 'Munc' in the plural, in the local dialect), before transferring the cows pasture. Today, the production, for the most part, is obtained in the dairy Pinzolo (about 50 tons of milk per day from which are extracted on average 54 forms). In the past Spressa was essentially a product 'residual', farmers and cheese makers were trying to get milk from the greatest possible amount of butter, well paid by the local market. What remained was used for the production of a cheese poor, whose consumption was reserved almost exclusively for the family farmer. The name Spressa comes from the dialect spress, ie the mass congealed juice. Today Spressa Giudicarie DOP is no longer skinny as before, because there would be more acceptable to the consumer, but it's still a low-fat cheese. The first historical references date back to ancient times, as evidenced by the Rule of Spinal and Manez of 1249. More recently, the references to this cheese can be traced in '' Urbario Marini, in which, for the years 1915 and 1916, shows the Spressa polenta as a typical cheese. Today the situation has changed in part because they were introduced modern equipment that ensure compliance with current hygiene rules, but remained unchanged the attention and care that you put into the production of this cheese. Even the procedures and methods of production, although with the necessary technological adjustments, were strictly those of the past. The use of raw milk only allows the production of a genuine cheese, with aromas, scents and flavors that are characteristic and is derived primarily from the local hay used. Monitoring compliance with the specification of production is entrusted to the Agency for Quality in Agriculture AQA S. Michele a / Adige, which operates on the basis of a specific Control Plan approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. This Control Plan covers both farms whose milk can be used for the production of Spressa Giudicarie DOP, both dairies transformers, both seasoners cheese. Spressa Giudicarie is a cheese made from raw cow's milk obtained from cows of the Rendena (native), Bruna, Grigio Alpina, Friesian and Simmental.
