The complete video-tale of the itinerary

The path was designed to give visitors an immersive experience in the backgrounds and stories illustrated in the museum’s exhibition path. A project that marks the Museum as a space where people can carry out cognitive experiences, of aesthetic or rational nature that, when taken outside “the box”, can be turned into an opportunity to get to know the territory and the surrounding landscape.

The itinerary, punctuated by trail signs, is divided into five main stages. It starts from the museum and crosses through the parco del Timone, touching upon several historical, naturalistic and anthropological sites. Each of the path’s stages has been enriched with stories and thematic in depth analysis from five different narrators who, because of experience or education, have long known and frequented the Cellere territory. Their voices have been documented by the museum through a video-tale that is now available to the public.

Made possible with funds from the Ministry of culture – Bando Piccoli musei, Sentiero brigando was created thanks to a fruitful collaboration between different figures that operate in the sector of the promotion of cultural heritage. Elena Ronca, environmental hiking guide of the Percorsi etruschi association, who’s responsible for tracing the path through a collaboration with the museum that lasted many years. Simona Soprano, community narrator and cultural communicator who designed the concept and video-tale, and took care of both graphics and communications for the project. Francesco Saverio Russomanno, video maker, author of the shooting and director of the video. Next to them, as genius loci (term used to describe an individual that is almost a symbol for the place they live in), are Mario Olimpieri, local historian, Antonio Manfroni, heir of the family that owned the mill of the same name, and Marianna Febbi, tour guide. The entire project has been coordinated and overseen by Marco d’Aureli, director of Cellere’s Museo del brigantaggio.

The path is approximately 4 km long and the entire itinerary, which has no particular difficulties, easily takes a few hours to complete. The use of proper attire and comfortable footwear is recommended.
