10th July: the Castle will open its doors to the public with the event “Si aprono le porte della Rocca”
Tuesday, 10 July at 6 p.m., Rocca delle Caminate will host the event “Si aprono le porte della Rocca”, in which visitors will be introduced to the new informative-didactic path facilitating castle visits. The path was developed by Ser.In.Ar., the property managing body.
The 24 illustrated boards offer two itineraries. The first one present the origins and major events of the Castle from the Middle Ages up until the twentieth century, while the second one focuses on the twentieth century and the events linked to Benito Mussolini. The Castle was indeed his summer home during the fascist era.
For those who want to know more, multimedia support is provided through the Rocca delle Caminate app, freely downloadable from the App Store (IOS) and Google Playstore (Android). Through this app, users can delve deeper into the information boards installed locally, or they can use the app as an audio guide, since each board is enriched with audio clips. Finally, a QR code reader can be used to scan the QR codes on each board, thus accessing the relevant page on the mobile app.
Besides the training goals and the research and innovation purposes connected to the Technopole housed in the Castle, Ser.In.Ar. thus intends to promote the cultural enhancement of the castle as a site of architectural heritage, after the masterful restoration of two years ago. The cultural-educational path is also available to schools for historical guided tours.
The event on 10 July has been promoted by Ser.In.Ar. together with the Municipalities of Meldola and Predappio, the Province of Forlì-Cesena (owner of the castle) and the Chamber of Commerce of Romagna. It will be held in the presence of Davide Drei (President of Forlì-Cesena), Giorgio Frassineti (Mayor of Predappio), Gianluca Zattini (Mayor of Meldola), Alberto Zambianchi (President of Ser.In.Ar.), Giuseppe Pedrielli (Director of the Ufficio Scolastico Provinciale), Francesco Ubertini (Rector of the University of Bologna) and Stefano Bonaccini (President of the Emilia Romagna Region). During the event, a video illustrating the history of the castle will also be shown.
