Cycling between fields and abbeys, pearls of Southern Milan – Chronicle

The activity of the Ecomuseo della Vettabbia e dei Fontanili began with a bicycle ride between fields and abbeys, a network of associations, municipalities and citizens that aims to enhance and make known the territory of the South-East of Milan. A 35-kilometer cycle-tour has allowed, in recent days, not only to admire the monasteries of Chiaravalle, Viboldone and Mirasole, jewels of local history and architecture, but also to map a path that winds its way through farmhouses and glimpses of Agricultural Park and which will now be re-proposed and relaunched as a destination for local tourism.

The ride started from Porta Romana and touched Chiaravalle, Borgo Bagnolo and the Campagnetta di San Donato, Viboldone, Locate Triulzi and Opera to reach Mirasole, with a break at Cascina Cantalupo and a suggestive off-program at the church of San Lorenzo. An initiative that, on the whole, wanted to represent a first step towards greater knowledge and enhancement of the territory. “Now the goal will be to indicate the points of greatest interest also through Qrcodes”, explains Fabrizio Cremonesi (in the photo), president of the Ecomuseum, in combination with which the online magazine Racconti di Viaggio was born.
