Since 1952 Istituto Geografico Centrale has published maps and mountain guides covering the northwestern Italian alpine regions of Piemonte, Valle d’Aosta and Liguria.

Our 1:50.000 scale maps are up to date and easy to read. Perfect for hikers and walkers, lovers of the outdoors, cycling and mountain bike adventure.

Our 1:25.000 scale maps are more technical and detailed; they also include the best known alpine skiing trails.

Our Guide books are an in-depth support for our maps and offer additional information on hiking, alpine skiing and mountain bike itineraries.


Besides our interest in mountain-related publications, Istituto Geografico Centrale also publishes technical maps of the city of Torino and its region, Piemonte.
