The path connects two cities united by their important productive history, united by a trekking itinerary that allows you to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, rich in excellence and tradition, and discover how much history and culture are hidden in this territory.
The route crosses villages, peaks and valleys, joining two historic centers of great value, which have grown over the centuries thanks to the skilful management of water: Bologna, the city of the sluice and canals, for centuries the capital of silk; and Prato, the city of Cavalciotto, gore and fulling, capital of the wool and textile district.
