Rescue road to the Castle

Rescue road to the Castle, students on their way to rediscover it

Many things are done, but many ideas are still to be implemented. The «Friends of Cidneo» committee, created to promote and develop the tourist and cultural attraction of the hill from which the Castle dominates, met in the usual assembly of members to confirm some activities that will take place in the coming weeks.

We start with the «Support Trophy», scheduled for Thursday 11 May, the non-competitive motor play walk, about 4km, intended for middle and high schools in Brescia and its province, to rediscover the Rescue Road: «We thought of this Trophy – says the president of the committee Giovanni Brondi – to enhance the Strada del Soccorso which was recently reopened also thanks to the contribution that our committee had thought of by promoting the Fai 2020 Competition.


The route is very fascinating: it starts from Largo Torrelunga, passes through the gardens of via Turati, and crosses the Pusterla vineyard and the Strada del Soccorso to descend into Pia Marta. Another initiative is the publication of the book «The Rescue Road in the Castle of Brescia» which the committee commissioned from Professor Alessandro Brodini: «Even the manuscript – continues Brondi – is almost finished and Professor Brodini has done an excellent job finding images of the 500 from various state archives. This is also to enhance the Strada del Soccorso».

The committee also supported the installation in the Pusterla vineyard of «Foundations of the future» by architects Stevan Tesic and Milena Veljkovic. Two points close to the heart of the Amici del Cidneo committee still remain to be defined: the inclined lift, which the administration seemed to like, and the Cidneon Festival, organized this year by A2A: «We are happy that one of our ideas has had so successful – concludes President Brondi -. We await what the administration will decide about the future, we are ready to start again, but we will follow the directives. Both the deputy mayor Laura Castelletti and the councilor Valter Muchetti were present at the assembly and with two brief interventions, they confirmed the importance of the committee.
