E-BIKE MONTE SOLE HISTORIC PARK
A cycle-touring route between art, history and nature, riding the latest generation of assisted bicycles that will allow you to enjoy a day of sport immersed in the wonderful natural environment of the Historical Park of Monte Sole. An expert MTB guide will accompany you along roads and paths, through woods and ridges, through medieval villages and memorial sites, to discover one of the most evocative territories of the entire Apennines. With a short train journey we will reach Vergato, where our itinerary starts. Here our guide will help us to adjust our bicycles and explain to us how to use them better then, wearing a helmet and technical clothing, we will leave for our adventure. On mixed-distance roads we will arrive at the nearby Grizzana Morandi, where we will visit the home of the famous painter Giorgio Morandi. In fact, he stayed in these places starting in 1913 and loved to go out early in the morning with all the equipment needed to draw and paint. Today it is a small museum where everything has remained as it was left, including objects and family memories, brushes, tubes of paint, carafes and jars. We will pedal immersed in the nature of the Apennines, we will travel along paths and dirt roads, we will cross a series of well preserved medieval villages along ancient Etruscan and Roman roads, such as Castelvecchio and Tudiano. These are the gateway to the Historical Park of Monte Sole, crossed by the Gothic Line. In addition to the extraordinary naturalistic beauties and the fauna richness, the Park is characterized by the historical value originated by the tragic events of the autumn of 1944. Here, in fact, the massacre of hundreds of innocent people, planned with ferocity by the Nazi-fascist forces, took place writing one of the darkest pages of the War of Liberation and the history of Italy. On our bicycles we will travel the memorial, from San Martino to Casaglia. In addition to excitement for the wide views and the nature of intense beauty, we can thus understand how the Second World War marked these areas. We will stop at the foot of Monte Sole, to rest and enjoy a picnic in the open air, protected by the shade of the old oak trees. Those who wish can take a short trek to the top of the mountain, where a memorial stone commemorates the Red Star Partisan Brigade that fought on these mountains. Back in the saddle, we will go down to the valley and walk along the path that runs along the Reno river up to Marzabotto. Here we can visit the Memorial to the Fallen and the House of Memory. Before returning to Bologna, we will have time for a well-deserved aperitif that will round off a day full of emotions.
