AVIS proposals continue, in collaboration with THE - Toscana Hiking Experience, to promote the activities of the Montespertoli Donors Group and propose experiences in nature to discover the more or less hidden wonders of our beautiful Tuscany. A way to be together, enjoy the beneficial effect of walking in nature and learn about places and legends of our territory.
This time we will visit, a stone's throw from Artimino, the Etruscan necropolis of Prato Rosello, with its famous and rare burials, the beautiful Porta Pineta, access area to the Barco Mediceo used by the Medici for hunting trips. But not only that, we will also walk the Path of the Resistance used, during the Second World War, by young heroes, for the sabotage of the Nobel explosives factory in Signa.
In our journey, a slightly more contemporary passage could not be missing: the recent installation, on the banks of the Arno River, of a hydroelectric power station. A concrete example of eco-sustainable technology at the service of the environment whose structure and operating principles we will understand.
