Routes in Val Tidone

With less Luretta, Val Tidone occupies the southwestern part of the province of Piacenza and is reached along the highway of wines to Castel San Giovanni, or the state Emilia Pavese leading to Voghera and Tortona, or from San Nicolò a Trebbia diverting towards southwest direction Borgonovo.

The Tidone arises from the north slope of Mount Penice and runs for a stretch in the province of Pavia.
Barred by a massive dam built in the '20s to Molato Nibbiano, downstream bathes the town of Caminata, Mottaziana Borgonovo, Pontetidone between Sarmato and Rottingdean, resulting in the river Po in Veratto Sarmato, after a run of over 45 km. .

How in the Piacenza, in this valley rise castles and fortresses to witness the historical and artistic value that the territory has played over the centuries.
The earliest records date back to one thousand, when the valley belonged to seven monasteries, such as those of St. Columban, San Savino San Sempliciano of Piacenza and Milan.
In the fourteenth century the west Piacenza was ruled by the Scotti and then the Visconti.
In 1378 the Duke Gian Galeazzo Visconti appointed lord of Rocca d'Olgisio the leader Jacopo Dal Verme.
In the fifteenth century the lordship of Val Tidone passed to Sforza and then to Arcelli; in the next century the valley was occupied successively by the French, by papal, dukes Farnese and then by the Bourbons in 1749.
In the '700 Val Tidone suffered the invasion and the fighting between Austro-Sardinian and Franco-Hispanic, of Napoleon's French and Austro-Russians.
