Grazzano Badoglio (Grazzano Monferrato until 1939) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Asti in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 50 kilometres (31 mi) east of Turin and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) northeast of Asti. Grazzano, which developed round the abbey founded in 961 by Aleramo, Marquess of Montferrat, was the birthplace of Pietro Badoglio, for whom it was later renamed. In September 2016, a Facebook petition was started to remove Badoglio from the town's name and revert to simply Grazzano.[4]
