The route starts off from the square below Mondonio, within the Municipality of Castelnuovo Don Bosco, at the interception point with “The Path of the Hills” described above. We suggest you visit Mondonio, where you can visit the house of San Domenico Savio, the old school and the old furnace, which wasrecently set up the way it was at the time of Domenico Savio. The overviewù from the tower and the medieval walls contribute to creating a very suggestive atmosphere. The path continues in a northerly direction and climbs up towards Pino d’Asti.Then it turns southeast before the village. The next leg crosses a wooded area of great naturalistic interest, which is part of the woods of Muscandia, named after the stream that flows in the valley. For some time the local association: “Terra, Boschi, Gente e Memorie - Land, Forests, People and Memories” has been doing extensive and in-depth research and studies, ranging from natural scienc to art and history. These studies cover an area of the hills in the northern part of the province of Asti, identifiedby the neighboring municipalities of Castelnuovo Don Bosco, Pino d’Asti, Passerano Marmorito and Capriglio: namely Muscandia (www.muscandia.it). As you keep walking, you will come close to the ridge of the hill, where forest coverage is not too thick. You can see the villages of Schierano, Primeglio e Passerano in the distance. You can easily recognize Passerano by the impressivecastle of the Radicati family. As you come out of the forest, you will soon come close to the residential
complex of Boscorotondo, already in the territory of Passerano Marmorito. From here the path follows the county road and ends near Gallareto where it joins the path “Ancient Villages.”
