We walk through history
Petrella Guidi, in the heart of Montefeltro, is the village of silence, a balcony overlooking the Valmarecchia, a brief journey to undertake in any season, even in February.
Let’s take a walk through history Petrella Guidi, in the heart of Montefeltro, is the village of silence, a balcony overlooking the Valmarecchia, a brief journey to undertake in any season, even in February.
It has kept intact all its characteristics of a fortified village, and that is why a walk in Petrella Guidi is a walk through history.
The houses are all made of stone and wind along narrow cobbled alleys. It is a place to listen to the silence, sit on the benches that accompany you to the tower to take a picture with your eyes, so that you can enter into the Renaissance views of Piero della Francesca’s landscapes.
At the foot of the Tower there is a tribute by the poet Tonino Guerra to Federico Fellini and Giulietta Masina.
We are in the “Campo dei Nomi” (Field of Names), a meadow of restful grass on which the marble slabs dedicated to Federico Fellini and Giulietta Masina have been laid. A sanctuary where the names of those who gave humanity art and emotion are honoured.
These words are found on an engraving: “Someone knew and several times you also confided it to me. “A rectangular stone in a grass meadow and maybe a bench would be enough for those who want to keep us company”.
Federico, the valley wants to be close to your name.
How could anyone not want to sit on that bench?
