6th Passeggiata della Libertà
On 25th April, the “Passeggiata della Libertà” walk returns: from Barga to the small town of Sommocolonia, one of the locations symbol of the Resistance, since in 1944 it was the scene of an important clash between German and allied forces.
The appointment, promoted by Pro Loco Barga and Associazione Ricreativa Sommocolonia with the collaboration of Arca della Valle and the patronage of the Municipality of Barga, stems from these past events, but also from the desire to underscore and enhance one of the smallest and most fascinating mountain villages of the Serchio Valley.
- at 10am, meetup in Piazzale Matteotti (in front of Pasticceria Lucchesi) in Barga. The walk begins here and proceeds to Sommocolonia through the old mule-track where, at 11.30am, wreaths for the Fallen will be placed at Monumento Monticino, at Rocca della Pace and in Piazza della Chiesa;
- from 1pm, all participants can enjoy a refreshment tour in the ancient town, catered by Associazione Ricreativa Sommocolonia. The route is not long (about 5 km) and dogs on a leash are welcome.
