  • Sunday on the farm - U Beriun -

    As you have known for some time now, our intent is to enhance and make our hinterland known. Sometimes certain goodies we find are more unique than rare! Like this one we are about to tell you about. Little Carolina is now beyond measure passionate about every type of animal, from the little mouse of the Branduardi fair to the most imposing and majestic Gigantosaurus. Apart from the fact that his mother does not like "rats" and we are submerged in plastic dinosaurs, this Sunday we find on the web, sifting through as it should, the offer of an afternoon at the educational farm "U Beriun" located in Vendone , in the first hinterland of Albenga. Vendone we already know it for the presence of the Rainer Kriester sculpture park, already told by us in a trekking article that will take you to visit the Giants of Montenero (have you already bought the magazine, yes?). The family-run farm extends into a vast centuries-old olive grove, between strips and plateaus. Follow a small piece of dirt road until you reach an open space where you can leave the car, then continue on foot for about fifty meters. In the green we immediately see the first peculiarity of the farm, well, this place is also a respectable camping site with the exceptional "gypsy bandwagon" that immediately catches Carolina's watchful eye. "The circus dad, come on !!" It took us a moment to explain to her that it is a holiday cottage ... but the noise of the geese nearby saved us to the extreme! Here are the first little animals to appear behind a semi-curve ... geese, pigs, canaries and sheep. A nice wary lama and then ... in front of us ... still donkeys (including a small one) ponies, goats, goats, billy goats, rabbits and chickens. More goats, two small rheas, some sheep and even a water turtle absorbed in the sun! An enchanted place for our little Carolina (and also for dad and mom to tell the truth, who after a Sunday at work, managed to pull the plug a bit. The possibility, with care and delicacy of the case, to interact with animals is really the best part of the experience. All surrounded by Mrs. Daniela's home cooking and the precious help of her children Clara and Marco. A table set in the porch overlooking the farm under the starry sky in August and white wine to surround rich and abundant dishes, closed the circle of our Sunday escape of a few hours. Massimo Revello is certainly an entrepreneur, farmer, courageous and tireless. Attentive and helpful with his guests as much as with his animals, which we imagine he adores very much. Only with love and passion, these realities can be born, it is up to us to make them known to you! Information and reservations Massimo 338/7238598.

  • Ghost of Voltri e Crevari

    From Piazzetta Santa Limbania, at the extreme west of Voltri, via alla Cannellona or delle Capanne went up, which from the 13th century reached Masone and continued along the Stura Valley and of which a historical memory remains in an old plaque affixed to one side. of the church of the same name which states “it is forbidden, under penalty of fines, the transit of wagons and the transport of trawled timber along the municipal road of Giovi”. Along this street, about a kilometer from the center of Volti, there is still today a sinister building called Cà de anime, "a true archive of ghost and murderers stories" as Michelangelo Dolcino defines it. It was, in ancient times, the only existing inn in the area and, therefore, a must for pilgrims and merchants. Its owner, in addition to being a hotelier, had the bad "habit" of offering a rest, alas, the "eternal" one to the wealthiest patrons. At the head of a band of brigands, made up of relatives and waiters, he made the chosen guest sit in a room on the first floor, away from prying eyes and ears, and here the crime was committed. Despite the reports of disappearance to the competent authorities, the slowness of communications and the banditry that was perpetrated, commonly, on many roads, favored the impunity of the criminals who were reached by justice, it seems, only for the defection of a member of the gang, eager to redeem himself. Since then everyone carefully avoided approaching the sad building until, after the Second World War, driven by necessity, a poor family took up residence there who were soon severely tested by terrifying events: pots falling from the cupboard, objects that they moved “de motu proprio” but, above all, an ephemeral apparition in white clothes asking for news of her boyfriend and which, finding no comforting answers, vanished leaving a scent of roses in the air. Crevari also has its Cà de anime in which, at night, you can hear the flow of a non-existent water, the sinister noise of an invisible broom scratching the floor, the sudden voices of a TV that turns on, inexplicably, by itself and , also in this case, the gruesome perception of sinister presences. They would be the restless souls of a mother and daughter who, after having charitably hosted two travelers, were rewarded with such generosity with the loss of their lives.

  • Ormeasco, tipical wine taste

    We are in the lowest area where Ormeasco can be grown, Borgo di Ranzo. Today, together with Carlotta Carminati, owner of the "A Maccia" farm, we are discovering a vine which, according to an ancient legend, was brought to the area of ​​Ormea (from which it takes its name) by the Saracens around the year 1000 , and subsequently spread throughout the Arroscia Valley. The merit of its initial diffusion would have been above all of the Marquis of Clavesana, the noble family that ruled the Valley in 1300, who gave the order to plant only this type of vine on the lands of the family since it is, for its taste, a delicious product. Ormeasco is an excellence of the province of Imperia, strongly present in the municipalities of Pieve di Teco, Pornassio and the Upper and Middle Arroscia Valley. In addition to the red vinification, there is also a rosé version, the Sciac-trà (literally presses and drains, that is, before the grapes color the wine too much). We then arrive in Ranzo, in the capital of Borgo, to make a quick and easy trek, and then go and discover the farm products. Carlotta is a wine producer and animal lover. Trekking is one of the many experiences that can be done in its small, big reality. A walk suitable for the whole family. With her we can also get acquainted with her sweet animals! 4 very nice donkeys, a mare named Rose, two playful dogs and a few fussy hens. The repertoire of "A Maccia" is wide and varied, especially in the tasting. In addition to the flagship product which is wine, you will also find Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the super focaccia di Fulvio and other snacks. Get to know them!

  • Il Manuale del Giovane Camallo | Due Zaini Un Camallo

    The educational project of Due Zaini and Un Camallo has finally taken shape and will be implemented in the school program of some district schools. On Wednesday 20 July 2022 there will be the first practical test on the field with a group of children from 3 to 10 years of age, assisted by their teachers. The work plan was drawn up with a team of teachers who lent themselves to work as a team, giving us their free time, pointing out first of all what is in line with the ministerial program applied in schools (even outside the Liguria Region), supporting the general needs of children and combining them with our main project "Two Backpacks and One Camallo". We are excited, agitated, enthusiastic and proud of every single piece that makes up our association. We will update you soon on the result.

  • The Project | Due Zaini Un Camallo

    The target With Due Zaini and Un Camallo we want to bring a bit of Liguria into people's hearts. This is our motto. We started to believe in it from the moment Valentina and I found that sharing is the strongest tool of all to reach people. Here, our first two magazines in the hands of the tourism minister Massimo Garavaglia. We hope to be able to bring out that strip of land from which everything was born. The project the project sees as a basic structure the promotion of the Ligurian territory in its entirety, through the "trekkinate" (a term that wants to nicely coin the trekking to the walk) carried out by Luca and Vale, members of the aforementioned cultural association. These "trekkinate", which we then go on to tell in magazines designed and published by our association, tell of itineraries accessible to all those people who, even without athletic training, want to discover the hinterland of our region. In these paths we go to explore the naturalistic, cultural and food and wine aspects that arise. Currently two issues of our series of magazines have already been released (we call them magazines because we do not feel able to call them either books or guides, because perhaps after all they are a bit of a fusion of all three formats) which are titled "Liguria, between land and sea" and "PreponmenteLiguria". On the first issue, presented on two occasions, in Pietra Ligure with the preface by Slow-Food and then in Loano at the foyer of the Giardino del Principe with the patronage of the municipality of Loano and a preface by IVG. In this issue there are 25 itineraries spread across the 4 provinces. On 4 September 2021, however, the second volume of our walks was presented at the Floriseum in Sanremo. Also in this edition there are 25 routes throughout the territory, with a main focus on walks for children. Personally Luca has a nearly three-year-old daughter, one of whom spent testing itineraries with us, backpacking or simply walking with his dad. The possibility of carrying out experiences in rooted or newly born companies, present in the area, such as a snack between rows of vines, or a small equestrian laboratory that pays attention to the care of farm animals in such a way as to create mutual respect between children and animals. To support the project we have created this website (published in three languages, ITA | EN | DE) accessible to all through free registration, where the user can find all the material of the magazine in digital format, including the trace of each single downloadable path in .gpx format that can be used on any device suitable for reading. The site also features a blog, a section dedicated to the gallery, a section dedicated to experiences in some realities in the area. This is to complete our idea of Liguria suitable for everyone. The third issue "Sciûsciâ e sciorbî no se pêu" is expected to be released in January where we add two important sections: The first is “Legends of Liguria ”where we will tell the most bizarre and interesting stories of ours town and, the second, will be entitled Mangià e beive; the latter will come promoted and edited in collaboration with the Slow Food Conduct Albenga Finale Alassio, in which will be highlighted, of time after time, the products of excellence of the territory. All activities that are subject to experience or visit during our trekkinate (which we then report in the column) have us put his face. They are the people, the products, often of very small realities and the territory that must emerge strong from the pages of our magazine. In this path, born in 2021, we have activated some collaborations, for example with the Antola Park with the support of Dr. Federico Marenco e Luca Alpestre (as a guide), the "Lavender Riviera dei Fiori" project, Vice versa ASD di Albenga and Slow Food conducted Albenga Finale Alassio. Simultaneously with the drafting (still in progress of the third number), we presented our project to the deputy mayor of Albenga Alberto Passino who gave us a challenge. Create a special that can tell the story of the ingauno hinterland. "Challenge" welcomed with pleasure and we are working to make a good impression! The current project will concern the Municipality of Albenga, Municipality of Villanova d'Albenga, Municipality of Zuccarello, Municipality of Erli, Municipality of Garlenda, Municipality of Castelbianco, Municipality of Castelvecchio di Rocca Barbena, Municipality of Arnasco, Municipality of Casanova Lerrone, Municipality of Cisano Sul Neva, Municipality of Nasino, Municipality of Ortovero and the Municipality of Ceriale, all of which are part of an IAT area that was born a few years ago. Although outside the area, we also wanted to ask the Municipality of Onzo and Vendone to join us. On the other hand, we are planning a similar discussion with Daniele Rembado, deputy mayor of Pietra Ligure, to create an area of experiences also in the hinterland of Val Maremola. Then again we have an "open game" with the municipality of Loano which, after having sponsored the project in its entirety and having purchased copies of "Liguria, between land and sea" in both Italian and English, sees us as accomplices in organization of some events aimed at discovering the territory. One, the first, "Discovering Mount Carmel" saw over 120 people participate! Here is where our will to share really comes to life! ​ We would like to underline that the elaboration of the website, the layout, the photographs, and the elaborated map traced with Garmin gps watches, the management of the instagram page @_duezainieuncamallo_ are only followed by Luca Riolfo. While for the texts and the organization of events, credit must be given to the superfantasmagoric Valentina Staricco. Confident of being able to collaborate with the municipal administrations, we hope to be able to fill one or more pages of free sponsorships issued by the various Ligurian municipalities, from the smallest to the largest, Genoa. ​ Long and uphill road? Patience, that to see all of Liguria and tell it, a whole life is not enough, we already know, which is why the project will never end. ​ Luca & Vale Growth During our journey we were lucky enough to present our project to several people in various areas of expertise, each one important for the growth of Due Zaini and Un Camallo. Here are some of them: Delivery of 300 copies of the first issue of our magazine purchased by the municipality of Loano to the mayor Luigi Pignocca Presentation of the project to Dr. Gian Franceco Lupattelli president of Aces Europa and MSP Italia Presentation of the project to the president of the Provincial Union of Hoteliers and Industrialists of Savona, Angelo Berlangieri Our collaboration with Monica Maroglio fiduciary of Slow Food conducted Albenga Finale Alassio Present at the delivery of the Loano European City of Sport flag Presentation of the project to the tourism minister Massimo Garavaglia 25/10/2021 The territorial fabric is increasingly gaining ground in the ingauno area.
