MARZABOTTO: BETWEEN HISTORY AND MEMORY
An itinerary to discover one of the most suggestive and interesting places in the Bolognese Apennines. A visit to the Pieve di San Lorenzo, where the perfection of Romanesque architecture shows itself in all its splendor; a walk along the Reno river, one of the most important rivers in the region; the Aria Museum, to discover the remains of the ancient Etruscan city of Kainua; the Historical Park of Monte Sole, an enchanting natural reserve and a symbol of Italian history; the solemn Memorial to the Fallen, felt monument to memory.
Parish church of San Lorenzo di Panico: we start our tour from one of the most interesting Romanesque buildings in the Bolognese Apennines. The building, built in the first half of the 12th century, still retains most of the original structures. We will be able to admire the interiors, the three splendid naves and the walls of squared sandstone ashlars, the decorated Corinthian imitation capitals and the apse with its precious architectural ornamentation.
River Reno: going down towards the valley, we will sail along the Reno river bank, the most important fume of Emilia-Romagna after the Po. It is born in Tuscany, in the province of Pistoia, and flows into the Adriatic Sea near Ravenna. The ancient bridge of Panico and the suspended walkway are really suggestive, from which you can enjoy a splendid panorama.
Pompeo Aria National Etruscan Museum: in its four rooms the most significant archaeological finds from the excavations of the ancient city of Kainua, the Etruscan Marzabotto, including the famous head of Kouros, in Greek marble, are collected and the bronze votive statuettes. Then we will visit the external excavations, to see the extraordinary preservation of the urban layout of the city, in a suggestive path among the remains of the acropolis until the eastern burial ground.
Lunch on a farm: before continuing the tour, we will enjoy a relaxing break with our legs under the table, tasting the home cooking and the excellences of the Bolognese food and wine tradition in a local farm.
Historical Park of Monte Sole : along an enchanting path immersed in nature, among the innumerable floristic species of the area and a rich and diversified wildlife, we will reach this protected area, known for the tragic episodes of autumn of 1944. Here in fact the Nazi troops slaughtered hundreds of inhabitants of these lands, erasing centuries of the quiet and laborious life of local communities. With a short walk we can reach the summit of Monte Sole, where a memorial stone commemorates the Red Star Partisan Brigade that fought on these mountains.
Shrine to the Fallen of Marzabotto: built in the early 1960s, the Shrine contains the bodies of about 800 civilians and partisans, mostly inhabitants of Marzabotto, Monzuno and Grizzana Morandi victims of the Nazi massacre, and the remains of about 400 soldiers. Particularly emblematic is the triptych in gold foil and bronze painted around the altar, which represents the war, the massacre and the partisan struggle.
