Moncalvo, Fusano and Asti are cities in Northern Italy which were inhabited by the Jewish exiles of France. Their prayers were said according to the nusach (text) of Rashi and his disciples. These communities never printed their nusach always using handwritten prayer books.
The communities were wiped out during the Holocaust along with their special nusach.
