Villages And Traditions

The saying goes that every cloud has its silver lining… and this is very true of the Brembana Valley! The abandoned villages have lain undisturbed for centuries and can therefore be admired today in still much their original state.

The itineraries in the valley

From the Venetian period to the Belle Époque

This itinerary is a veritable trip through history and its architecture, the fascination of how stone was fashioned in each period with taste and craftsmanship that seems lost today, despite the advantages of modern technology. Many events connected with illustrious guests, mysterious happenings and ambitious projects seem far removed from the present, even though some only occurred little more than a century ago. So we set out to discover San Pellegrino Terme of the Belle Époque, rural, peaceful Bracca , once a competitor in terms of mineral water, and finally Serina - Venetian, religious and artistic. This itinerary is by car, but may also induce you to take side-trips on foot through the natural beauty of the lower Brembana Valley and Serina Valley on interesting, effortless walks.

Maga SkyMarathon 2020

Serina
The orobic staff is already working at full capacity for the 13th edition of what has now become an end-of-season super classic.

There are two dates on the agenda: Friday 01 May and Sunday 6 September. In the first one, everyone in front of the pc for the opening of registrations. In the second one, ready for the starting blocks on the two scheduled distances: marathon 38km (3000 m D+) and Skyrace (24 km 1400 D+).

For 2020, however, two real skyrunning routes will be proposed to the gourmets of the skyrunning races. Two "old style" races revisited and proposed in a modern perspective.

"This is a year of new challenges and new projects for us - said the president of the organizing committee Davide Scolari -. Following the requests of our aficionados and those who, bewitched by the images of the last edition, decided to come and race on the Orobie Bergamasche, we will propose for 2020 the Sky and Marathon version. However, we have new ideas in store to re-propose in great style, perhaps already in 2021, even the path of ultra in all its spectacularity".

Menna, Arera, Grem and Alben, the peaks from whose initials the little big dream of the "MAGA" started, are therefore ready to be the background for another great Sunday of sport. Keep yourself free the first weekend of September. Those of  Serina Valley are races they deserve.
