The story behind the image
Should you ever wonder which way to use for a trip from Parma (Emilia-Romagna) to La Spezia (Liguria) in northern Italy, please consider using the Strada Statale 62 (SS62) instead of the highway between the two cities, the A15. The SS62 is the winded, former connection that is not only free of charge (!) but leads through a beautiful landscape and several small historic villages and towns.
This is the historic town of Pontremoli which is home to the Duomo di Pontremoli which had been built in 1630. The church Chiesa di San Giacomo al Campo exists since the 12th century. It’s a real joy to explore this town using the narrow main street, Via Garibaldi, which provides a sense the time being ‘on hold’ as it is like it used to be.
