A two-day “cultural fitness” with … Napoleon.
This event organised by “Landandé” Committee on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March, focused entirely on the battle of Bricchetto, which took place on 21 April 1796 and ended the first phase of Piedmontese Italian campaign.
The program of the two days includes
A debate at 9pm on Saturday 25 at the Sala Polivalente of Vicoforte (via Al Santuario, 9 Vicoforte), during which local history experts Vanni Badino, Ettore Fili and Piercarlo Delpiano will introduce the topic.
On Sunday 26, there will be a walk (the rendez-vous is at 8.45am in front of the Santuario Vicese, Piazza Carlo Emmnuele 1) which will take visitors directly to the battle site, and a visit of the Chruch of San Pietro, with Maria Grazia Orlandini. (Bring a picnic lunch lunch).
