CAMUGNANO Travel Guide


Camugnano is a town of 1,849 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. Its origins are ancient, even dating to the Bronze Age, as evidenced by the discovery of 14 axes and some votive statuettes found not far away, but there are also testimonies of the Etruscan presence, and especially of the Roman one, which probably started the first settlements; even the origins of his name are of Roman derivation: "Camonius" was in fact the name of a Roman family. In the Middle Ages the territory of Camugnano was at the border between the possessions of the city of Pistoia, those of Bologna and the Church, but fortunately at the end annexation to the city of Bologna was relatively peaceful, through diplomatic agreements, and the territory of the Camugnanese came under the control of the Captains of the Mountain, whose headquarter was in Vergato.


what to see and what to do - PARK OF THE LAKES OF SUVIANA AND BRASIMONE

Worth a visit is Palazzo Comelli, an example of high-bourgeois mountain architecture, with internal courtyards, the Colonial House and stables and barns. Very interesting is the great sundial and the beautiful Oratorio, that of Santa Maria in Porcole; currently the Palace houses the Ecomuseum of Camugnano. From here you can enjoy a fantastic view of Lake Suviana.
The lake is part of the Suviana and Brasimone Lakes Regional Park, on the Bolognese mountains, between oak, beech and coniferous forests, with the two artificial lakes that make up the contours. For those who want to take a break from the frenzy of everyday life and for outdoor enthusiasts, this is the ideal place: within it there are 30 kilometers of trails that cross the uncontaminated nature, a natural habitat of a rich local fauna, consisting of deer, fallow deer and even wolves, and satisfy both those who want to take a quiet walk or who wants to make a nice bike ride and also who want to arrive on top of Mount Calvi at 1283 meters above sea level; during the winter you can also go hiking with snowshoes at night. With the occasion you can also make trips to the villages of Bargi and Stagno, very picturesque. Obviously, given the presence of the two lakes, there is also the possibility of having a nice bath or doing sports such as boating, windsurfing and kitesurfing, but also rafting on the river Limentra. Near the lake of Suviana there is also the Saltapicchio Adventure Park, where there are 10 trails, some special for children and others for adults.

EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS


Many events take place in Camugnano: throughout the summer, within Estate Camugnanese, you can listen to organ concerts in Bargi church, watch the beautiful fireworks over the lake and watch the 41° Suviana Historical Rally of the High Apennines in Bologna, but also enjoy tasty culinary dishes at the Festival of the Boar and the Cervo, which usually takes place at the end of July; in September in Poranceto there is Smielatura Feast, that is, the practice of extracting the honey, with the possibility then to taste the honey products; the third Sunday of October there is the Borlengo and Chestnut Festival, during which, walking among the stalls of local handicrafts, you can taste roasted chestnuts, castagnaccio and borlenghi, a kind of crepe very thin and crispy; at the end of October, both in Burzanella and Poranceto there is the Chestnut Festival; in the beginning of November there is the Tartufesta, with the possibility to taste the white truffle of the Bolognese hills and many mountain specialties.

TYPICAL FOODS

Among the typical dishes of the country and mountain kitchen of Camugnano we find Strappe with poor sauce, a type of pasta made with flour and water and topped with gravy, chopped bacon, garlic, onion and parsley. Another typical dish was the torti, made with chestnut flour and water and cooked among the chestnut leaves to leave the dough more soft; if the chestnut leaves were not used then the dough were crispy, and in this case they were called saporite. Normally you can eat it with ricotta.
