The itinerary starts from Quartero along the asphalt road that leads to Rogoledo, here starts the mule track that leads to Valpiana and climbs up to Tappia.
Along the path some kind of stone table is met, called “la posa di mort” (the lay of the dead in dialect). It’s a table where the coffins of the deceased that were carried to the cemetery of Tappia were laid. This laying allowed the carriers to rest along the strenuous path.
Tappia is a medieval town, once an independent town, where the ancient oven and the wine press can still be seen today, together with many terracings.
The itinerary proceeds along the old mule track, today called “way of presses and mills” where, next to the Rio D’Anzuno, the mills used to grind the rye can still be seen, although partially ruined.
Next, the characteristic town of Anzuno is me, where an ancient wine press is still used today. Here the tradition says that, following the plague of 1630, all of the inhabitants of the town died and the answer to those who asked about the survivors was “ 'nzün” (nobody, in dialect). Since then “Anzuno” got the meaning of “nobody”
