                  ROAD MAP ITINERARY 6

A trip to the Genova Valley can be enjoyably combined with a visit to the village of Montagne and its districts of Lariana and Binio. Start at Molveno and Ponte Arche and go towards Tione. Very soon you come to the turn-off for Ragoli and then you head for Preore. From Preore turn right and take road no. 53 which winds uphill as far as Binio (outlying district of Montagne, 1075 m.). Carry on along the asphalt road (winding and narrow) towards the Daone Pass (1,300 m.). Near Borzago take the main road for the Rendena Valley. After the bridge in Carisolo turn left in the direction of the Genova Valley and the Cascate Nardis waterfall (a walk to the Bedole Refuge, about 3 hours, is recommended). For the return journey, if you do not wish to go around the Brenta Group, take the classic route: Pinzolo, Tione, Ponte Arche and Molveno.

Those people interested in religious art should take a look at the churches where the itinerant Baschenis family of painters from Averaria near Bergamo once worked: in Pinzolo the church of San Vigilio boasts an impressive Danse Macabre while in Massimeno the façade of the church was painted by Simone Baschenis towards 1530, as it was in Giustino where the church of Santa Lucia also has a carved wooden high altar sculpted by Stefano Lamberti. Dionisio Baschenis decorated the small church of San Valentino above Vigo Rendena, while other works of his can be seen in the church of Sant’Antonio Abate, just to the north of Pelugo.
