The Orange Flags: signs of great little Italian extraordinary.

Since 1998 the Touring chooses among the many municipalities of the Italian hinterland (maximum population of 15,000 inhabitants) that make choices for a quality tourist accommodation and offer excellent local products.

To date, there are over 220 Orange Flags waving in those places that bear witness to the millenary, fragmented history of the Italian province.
Small towns that seem dispersed, but never insignificant, many of which hide small extraordinary stories, of ancient glories then interrupted by the unpredictable paths of history with a capital H, which bear witness to illustrious visits in architecture, works of art , tales handed down.

The Orange Flags therefore reward and signal to the most inattentive, to those who are passing through, or to those who consult a famous guide the extraordinary hidden treasures of the Italian province.

Sunday 6 October will host the largest treasure hunt ever seen to discover the Orange Flags

The extraordinary tower of the Palazzo dei Vescovi of Castelnuovo

It is not a real competition, but each team that completes the course will receive a prize from the territory, delivered at the end of the course, returning to the starting point.

Participation is free and open to all, subject to online registration on the website of the Touring Club. Of the team that wishes to participate, composed of a maximum of six people.

An excellent idea for families and groups of friends to spend a different autumn Sunday, with a hunt for the treasures of the Italian province. They will have to the starting point and in the time slots indicated at the time of registration; there they will receive clues to start their hunt.

There are six villages to discover in Liguria, including Brugnato and Castelnuovo. What will their hidden treasures be?

The round hamlet of Brugnato

In the province of La Spezia, two great little celebrities, excellent “testimonials” of the two valleys of the inland of the eastern province: Val di Magra with Castelnuovo and Val di Vara with Brugnato.

Who knows if the treasure hunt in Castelnuovo will lead to explore the many stories witnessed by the millennial tower of the castle of the Bishops of Luni, which looks 360 ° over the whole valley? Or perhaps the hunt will retrace the mystery of the theft of the precious Crucifix by Pieter Brueghel from the Church of Santa Maria Maddalena? Perhaps in the beautiful Flemish art painting partecipants will have to find the secret peculiarity that we will certainly not reveal here, not to spoil the surprise!

What will be the hunt for Brugnato’s treasures? Perhaps find his oldest church, among the many bell towers of the round village, or what was the typical trail of a pilgrim on the Via Francigena arriving in the village? There are so many things to see in Brugnato, there will be plenty of choice.
