This is a 12 km hike with an 800 m difference in altitude, that passes through the Forcora Pass and the Veddasca Valley, from where you descend to Piero’s Mills. From here, there are "only" 1442 steps left to complete the hike and arrive in Monteviasco.
This is one of the projects contained in the new 2022-2027 management plan of the UNESCO serial site “The Longobards in Italy. Places of Power.” A link between the castrum, on the hill, and the Monastery of Torba, on the valley floor, is planned.
Various projects have been scheduled for the village: the investment of €400,000 for redevelopment work, the idea of opening a widespread hotel, and of making the most of the sculptures and paintings that have made it unique.
