VIDICIATICO Travel Guide


Vidiciatico is a district of Lizzano in Belvedere of 714 inhabitants, in the province of Bologna. 

Its origins are ancient, in fact at Rocca Corneta and Sboccata of Bagnadori were even found evidence of the existence of settlements dating back to the Stone Age and the Bronze Age, although this probably was not a stable settlement since the population were mostly nomads. 

It was with the arrival of the Etruscans, the Ligurians and the Galli Boi that the first fixed and consolidated settlements were constituted. 

According to the legend, his name comes from a brigant named Ciatico who carried out his raids in this area, or from "Valiciatico", that is to say, a crossing-point, according to another possibility instead means "place where it is allowed to cut the willows" which still grow in abundance on these mountains.
