These are the most important exponents of the genius loci of Como,
and it is to them that the Park “From Pliny to Volta.
A journey in human science” is dedicated. The 15 itineraries
you will find in this guide are in the footsteps of these great men
and of other important figures who were influenced by them and/or
were inspired by the same landscapes: from Leonardo da Vinci
to the Shelleys, from Leopardi to Hitchcock, from Foscolo to Hesse.
Pietro Berra (1975) was born and bred in Como. As well as being
a journalist for “La Provincia”, the local newspaper, he is the editor of
its weekly cultural supplement “L’Ordine” and has published 25 books
of poems, fiction, and essays. In 2017 he set up and now oversees
an association for the promotion and regeneration of the Como area
called Sentiero dei Sogni. He is also responsible for devising the park
“From Pliny to Volta. A journey in human science”, a project aimed
at systematising inspiration trails around the Lake Como area.
