Chiomonte (French: Chaumont, Piedmontese: Cimon) is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 60 kilometres (37 mi) west of Turin. The name of the town derives from the Latin Calcis Mons which refers to the calcium-rich soil of the area. Before the 8th century, Chiomonte was located on the south side of its present valley but, after a landslide, the town was moved to its present location.
