one last glimpse to the pieve, and we are on the road again, heading to Refrontolo. but the monumental church keeps watching us running, from its dominant position on the hill behind our backs.
Refrontolo is locally famous for a straw wine called Marzemino, or Refrontolo passito, and for a charming water mill, hidden in the trees, at the foot of one hill. this is the Molinetto della Croda, a rare example of rural architecture, built on the sixteenth century.
it was active until 1953, and the millstone is still working. it's now used for local fairs, like the celebration of harvest in october, aiming to keep the old milling tradition alive.
the music of water, the enchanted, timeless atmosphere.. the place has a fairytale charm, don't you think?
