Between history and legend along the "Charlemagne trek"

The historic road

At a length of 240 kilometers (149 miles), the Way of Charlemagne begins in the city of Bergamo and runs through the villages along the Serio river and through the valleys of Valli d’Argon, Val Cavallina, Val Borlezza, Valle Camonica, Val di Sole and Val Rendena. The full route extends from Bergamo to Carisolo, in the region of Trentino, passing through Lovere. The Trentino section is 67 kilometers (42 miles) long and can be done in 4 legs, passing through the towns of Vermiglio, Ossana, Pellizzano, Mezzana, Commezzadura, Dimaro, Pinzolo and Carisolo. The route is marked by signage bearing the symbol of a white crown against a red background.

Art along the way

A total of 20 art installations are planned for the route as part of the LO-CAR project. The first two were executed in March of this year with the support of the association Borgo degli Artisti, from Bienno, in collaboration with Carisolo Pro Loco. In the “Sculpture Park” between Bienno and Berzo Inferiore, travelers will find “The Place of Soul and Wind”, a work in three parts by the artist Barbara Crimella. Outside the Carisolo town hall there is the statue “King Lo-Car”, sculpted by Tomaso Vezzoli inspired by the figure of Charlemagne.
