The fourth and last italian multiplier sport event of the European project to fight sedentariness colled “MEW Project” took place on Sunday, December 2nd 2018, and combined physical activity in nature, psychophysical wellbeing and fun in the beautiful medieval town of Cittaducale.
The excursion, organized by FederTrek and the GEP - Hiking Group of the Province of Rome Association, in collaboration with ANIAD, was conceived with two different itineraries, in order to be walkable by anyone: one longer and hiking (10 km, with 250 meters in altitude); the other simpler and for everyone (5 km, 100 meters in altitude).
The first started in Paterno village and crossed the forest in a silent path painted with characteristic autumn colors. The second began directly from the ancient Baths of Vespasiano, dating back to the second century B.C. and functioning until the 4th century A.D. In addition to walking surrounded by nature, the event has in fact provided for the exploration of finds of villas, baths and ancient Roman roads, which have captivated all those present.
The two itineraries converged in the town of Cittaducale, where Maria Domenica Calvani, the local guide, shown all the wonders guarded by the jewel of Lazio: from the Monastery of Santa Caterina d'Alessandria to the Cathedral, passing through the adjacent Bishop palace of the seventeenth century until the main square tower which, especially with the evocative lighting of the evening, always gives a fascinating atmosphere.
