Instead, to discover the surrounding areas, another opportunity could be to take the “Sustainability Trail”, a project established two years ago by the cooperative Bosso, specialised in experience tourism (the canoe trip along the Tirino River is not to be missed). The 22 kilometre bike trail, well-marked and equipped with information signs, crosses the entire Casauria region. Passing through Tocco da Casauria, you cross the Torre de Passeri, where you must make a stop and visit the nearby San Clemente Abbey, follow the ancient route of the Via Claudio-Valeria – the common opinion is that the Centerbe, the local highly alcoholic liqueur made from an infusion of healing herbs, was produced the first time within the Benedictine walls – and you arrive at Bolognano, an ancient village perched on a hill overlooking the valley of the Orta River. A place that, other than being the realm of the wine Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, for a long period was an artistic outpost, thanks to the efforts of Lucrezia De Domizio Durini. She was a rather extravagant publisher and lover of contemporary art, known as the baroness, and was able with her creative energy to transform an entire village into an international culture venue. For a long period, the artist and sculptor, Joseph Beuys, also lived in Bolognano. The shaman of art, who, in that small village, found the ideal place to give full reign to his visionary idea of “social sculpture”. In 1999, the municipality dedicated a square to him, “Piazza Joseph Beuys”.
