Geography
Aosta Valley is the smallest, least populous, and least densely populated region of Italy. It is the only Italian region constituted by only one province. The territory is mountainous and drained by Alpine rivers as the Dora Baltea. The highest peak, as well as the highest mountain in Western Europe, is the Monte Bianco. Aosta Valley is an autonomous region with special statute and is bilingual. The statute protects and recognizes the official use of Italian and French as regional languages. This region borders France to the west, Switzerland to the north and Piedmont to the south and east.
