The Via Matildica del Volto Santo is an itinerary connecting the most important spots in the life of Matilde di Canossa, a spectacular combination of history, religion and tradition. Lombardia, Emilia Romagna, Toscana are connected in a path from Mantua to the Po Valley, then up to the Appennines and descending gently until the city of Lucca. The path begins in Guastalla in the fertile Po valley and slowly approaches the Reggio Emilia city in the northern area, where you will notice the futuristic and modern architecture designed by Santiago Calatrava. Moving south past the city, you leave the green valley to climb towards the Appennino Reggiano, time slows down here, the atmosphere becomes more relaxed and suddenly you find yourself among historic memories.
