ONE OF THINGS TO DO BY BICYCLE WHEN AT THE CINQUE TERRE: 

CLIMB THE PASSO DEL BRACCO.


bracco pass giro italia italy tour climb route passo
Great asphalt on Bracco Pass


Route already in Roman times, the pass is important because it connects the Cinque Terre and the hinterland of La Spezia with the Genoese Tigullio.

However, a real road connection was opened only in 1823, on the initiative of Carlo Felice, thus ending the centuries-old isolation of the province of La Spezia towards Genoa. The Aurelia car is thus completed.

In the immediate post-war period, the passage of the pass was made insecure by gangs of criminals.
Now is one of most scenic appennino pass to be climbed by bicycle when in Liguria region.

How much work is behind a glass of Brunello di Montalcino wine? 

Behind a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil? 
Behind the tomato we put on the pasta?


This is the first video in a long series in which Gennaro de Concilio, CEO at Veloce and Co-Founder at Squisito tells with sustainable farmers the curiosities, the hard work and the added value of their non-industrial production, our Italianness, our heritage to be preserved.

A return to simplicity, to the enhancement of the Italian territory.


In the last 10 years with Veloce we have had the privilege to explore 90% of the Italian country and to met thousands of people, many producers, each one with a personal story.

We want to tell these and share their stories on Squisito channels. 

In this video we discover  L 'Aietta winery by Francesco Mulinari who produces an excellent Rosso di Montalcino, Spumante di Sangiovese, an exceptional white and a magnificent Brunello di Montalcino, defending the heritage, the biodiversity, and the old way to do wine (as for example using horses in agriculture or goose to naturally cut green). 

In this video Francesco tells how he defends the biodiversity of the places and how he treats his vineyards in the most natural way possible to produce an exclusive red wine. 

The video is subtitled in Italian and English languages with English subtitles. 

Discover the wine, Italian food and more at: 

Enjoy!

Some stages in Campania region, southern Italy was particularly interesting, like the visit at the Nola village, close Naples and at the Aqueduct of Vanvitelli (Caroline Aqueduct).


One of our characteristics is the true knowledge of the territories. 

Why this places was particularly interesting? 
Because Gennaro de Concilio, founder at Veloce, was born in Naples and had the opportunity to live this places when was young. 

Many memories but above all a great artistic and cultural value.

Aqueduct of Vanvitelli (Caroline Aqueduct) 

Aqueduct of Vanvitelli is a massive Aqueduct located close Maddaloni village and is the aqueduct built by Luigi Vanvitelli under commission by Charles of Bourbon, to supply water to the Royal Palace of Caserta and to the San Leucio complex. 

The water is picked up from the foot of Taburno massif close Benevento and moved for 38 km route (mostly underground).

The section of the aqueduct shown in the photo was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 and (modelled on ancient Roman aqueducts) is made of three rows of arches, 55.8 metres (183 ft) high at its highest point.

NOLA VILLAGE - Lilies Festival World Heritage Unesco 

One of our memories related to this village is the feast of the "Lilies of Nola".

The Feast of Lilies is a popular Catholic festival held every year in Nola on the occasion of the patronal holiday dedicated to Saint Pauline. 

With this event the Nolans remember the return to the city of Ponzio Meropio Paolino from captivity by the barbarians occurred in the first half of the fifth century. 

The festival is part of the Network of the great Italian shoulder machines inserted since December 2013 in the Oral and Intangible World Heritage of UNESCO.

Gennaro de Concilio, the founder at Veloce had the opportunity to photograph this festival, below some impressive photographies of carftmade shoulder machines who are carried by local people since the morning, all night long accompanied by a melodic live music played by the band on the shoulder machine.

The shoulder machines are moved by local people dancing to the sound of music, in the alleys of the village to the main square at the San Paolino cathedral. 

«I was told in Naples about the feast of San Paolino in Nola and I was also assured that it deserved to be seen. I had just entered Nola, which struck me with a strange sight, of which I had no idea and which made me doubt that I was in the Indies, or in Japan, rather than in Italy, in Campania. I saw a kind of tower, high, thin, all adorned with red paper, gilding, silver friezes, carried on the shoulders by men. It was divided into five orders, with floors, columns, decorated with frontispieces, arches, frames, niches, figures and covered on both sides with numerous flags. Then every tower in front of the cathedral began a strange show, as each of those great piers was dancing to the sound of music. A man with a staff went before the porters, who beat the time, and the towers followed him. The colossus oscillated and seemed at every moment that he wanted to lose balance and fall; all the figures moved, the flags waved; it was a fantastic glance.» 

Ferdinand Gregorovius - German historian specialized in the medieval history of Rome

A long weekend? The French Riviera, from Mentone to Nice by bicycle

The landscapes and the light were the appeal in the Côte d'Azur for many artists of the '900,  a tour on their routes can't disregard the visit of some museums. 

The first stop suggested is at the small town of Mentone close to the Italian border where could visit the museum Musée Jean Cocteu, the work of Rudy Ricciotti who decorated, a few miles further, in Villafranche-sur-Mer, the chapel Saint-Pierre.

We found an interesting blog post about the Museum Jean Cocteau in Mentone at this link.

The lemon is one of the symbols of the city of Menton, where thanks to a very mild Mediterranean climate, many lemon groves bear fruit, and, since 1933, the Lemon Festival takes place in the city, which takes place within the last three weekends of February.

A charming way to visit Provence is to follow the ancient Roman streets. 

From Aix-en-Provence take the via aurelia and continue to Arles, a UNESCO World Heritage city with its ancient center, Roman and Romanesque monuments and museums such as that of Arles Antique.

Before leave Aix-en-Provence we suggest a break at the “Madeleines de Christophe shop who is close by Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, in the historic town centre of Aix-en-Provence. Made in a traditional way on a daily basis (in Peynier), their "madeleines" are suited to all tastes: plain, lemon, orange, almond, chocolate, rum and even vanilla. 
The shop also sells cannelés, cakes and macaroons!


Madeleine de Christophe things to do in Aix en Provence

Continue towards Avignon to visit the palace of the Popes and walk through the alleys of the city, buy a watercolor from one of the street artists and photograph the opera house.

We then go to Nimes, a candidate for UNESCO heritage, to visit Arènes and perhaps attend the historical re-enactment of the Great Roman Games (normally organized at the end of each month of April). In Nimes you can visit the Carré d'Art designed by Norman Foster.

Some other places to visit: the "Pont du Gard", the Roman aqueduct-bridge and the "triumphal arch" in Orange, ending the route to Vaison-la-Romaine with its archaeological sites. 

For those who want you can go back on your way by taking the Via Domizia and enjoy your cycling training at the Luberon, in the heart of Provence.
