Perino Waterfalls
Despite the beauty of the area and their relative proximity to Piacenza, the reputation of the falls of the river Perino has emerged only in recent years, thanks to events that the community of Calenzano organized to finance the renovation of the church, attracting people from every part of the province. In a stretch of about two kilometers, the river is channeled into a deep gorge and takes twelve jumps, the highest of which is about seventeen feet. And like some avant-garde theater, in which stage and audience are one, who wants to enjoy these natural wonders can be up to the hollows carved by erosion and walk along the shore, and can also climb on the rocks from which the 'water comes down, using steel cables laid in many places. This way of dealing with the hike, however, is to be avoided if you are not fitted, as stated clearly in the paper Cai Northern Apennine Piacentino, helmet, harness, carabiners and cords, as well as, and is the Most importantly, the experience equipped routes. Also in this respect, the reporting of difficulty hiking in the technical data we categorically exclude even the smallest climbing ever necessary, by following the directions of these lines. It is no coincidence that the paper cited above the Cai label the path with the double "E" of "Walkers Experts. " Another consideration is the travel times, never as in this case were indicative, due to continual digressions to get the most suggestive and retrace your steps. Do not forget, finally, to look around even in the dense vegetation: a keen eye will recognize fine specimens of black poplar (but also more rare type of white), red alder and willows and ripaiolo. http://pcturismo.liberta.it/asp/default.asp?IDG=41220

More About Italy

The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.Text by Steve Smith.
