We will start from a panoramic point of the city at the foot of suggestive karst caves. From here, we will immerse ourselves in the natural and urban landscape marked by the Gerenzone river, protagonist of our history and engine of industrial development that has made Lecco famous worldwide for the export of iron. Along the way we will meet local people who will tell us their memories, we will discover the river ecosystem, old factories, redeveloped buildings that are looking for a new identity made of a dialogue between water and iron. Important thing! We will ask you for ideas to give new life to these places because we believe that new eyes can contribute to the improvement of our city. Finally we will taste the typical products of our territory. With us you will discover an authentic and original Lecco. Ready for adventure?
