I have written this guide for everyone who loves the history of art and the surroundings of Tabiano Castello, the land where I was born and raised. It is not meant to be comprehensive, but a personal choice, the fruit of memories of places that have stirred my emotions and which I have a strong desire to share: the castles, villages, churches and abbeys that fill this landscape from the Apennine and valleys to the plain and its great cities of Parma and Piacenza. I have devised 12 itineraries, each starting at Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello. Some are longer than others and some of them have alternative routes and destinations. They can be followed in part or whole, starting at the end and finishing at the beginning. They can be followed by car or, with the nearer ones, by bicycle and even horseback. The book is an invitation for tourists and guests at Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello, as well as those staying at Tabiano Bagni and Salsomaggiore Terme, to discover these treasures, both large and small, each set within its history and landscape.
