Peppone and Don Camillo

The itinerary goes through the streets of Brescello, the village made immortal by Don Camillo and Peppone, the capital of the Piccolo Mondo by Giovanni Guareschi. And what better way to start the day than with a visit to the Museum of Peppone and Don Camillo, to walk towards the Guareschi Park where there is a bust dedicated to the writer.

In Piazza Matteotti you can then admire the bronze statues of the two heroes of Guareschi, placed there to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first film. Another unmissable place is the Church of Santa Maria Nascente, inside which is the famous "talking Christ" of the films.

Every year then, Brescello hosts the prestigious festival, 'The Worlds of Guareschi and Zavattini' which celebrates the lives and works of these extraordinary artists.
