Reconstruction of the ancient wash-houses of Bargecchia

About
The Project
Project aimed at the realization of hydraulic intervention works and reconstruction of the ancient washtubs built numerous along the various springs that characterize this territory.


The wayfarers who travel the wash-house route - one of which was built near the bell tower - will be able to listen to the double of the four bells installed in the bell tower of the church of the village of Bargecchia, whose sound was inserted by Giacomo Puccini in the opera Tosca .


Although in the last world war the Ministry of War had decreed the requisition of the bells to merge them obtaining weapons, those of Bargecchia were spared, and their particular melody can still be pleasantly listened to today.
