Lugo, RA, Italia
Cycling trough the past, XV and XVI centuries, discovering the secrets of the Lords of Italy, expecially the Este, Sforza, Borgia dynasties, it's our aim. We are interested in the life of Caterina Sforza, the Countess of Forlì and Imola. Caterina, from an early age, distinguished herself by her bold and impetuous actions taken to safeguard her possessions from possible usurpers and to defend her dominions from attacks, when they were involved in political intrigues. She built a lot of magnificent castles, well preserved until today, that we will visit cycling trough the Bassa Romagna land. Firstly we move from Lugo (Estense Castle) where we can visit, apart from the Rocca Estense , the ancient Loggia del Pavaglione (XVIII century). We stop in Bagnara with the magnificent "Rocca" of Caterina Sforza: she turned the castle into a defensive "modern" system in step with the introduction of heavy artillery in the military art. Finally we arrive in Imola, where we will visit another castle, splendid example of fortified architecture. Returning to the starting point, we will take a little rest, drinking and eating genuine local homemade food.
