Sile River Natural Park
The Sile river, with its nearly 100 kilometers, is the longest resurgence river in Europe. It rises in Casacorba di Vedelago (TV), about 15 km from Treviso. Particularly characteristic are its springs, locally called "water fountains" that emerge from the subsoil. The whole course is protected by the Sile River Regional Nature Park. To know the Sile, there are only two ways. Water, canoeing, or out of water, with bicycle. Throughout the river, a cycle-pedestrian network called GiraSile, namely GreenWay Sile' Park, is under construction. For those who love the 'slow' natural cycle-tourism, the itinerary is simply enchanting. Source: http://www.guideveneto.com/index.php/sv/il-fiume-sile.html Photos of Gianfranco Speranza.

Montello and Piave
The Montello is a hill that extends into the center of the Veneto, halfway between the extraordinary lagoon of Venice and the spectacular peaks of the Dolomites of Belluno. The landscape is delightful thanks to the great variety of colors, perfumes and also to the many cultural resources. Thanks to the Serenissima Republic of Venice, which secured long periods of peace, here were established dozens of Venetian Villas, extraordinary residences in the countryside of the Venetian nobility. But besides these pearls of art and architecture, Montello and Piave are also testimonies of the past. Here, in fact, took place the most important moments of the Great War. It is no coincidence, therefore, if some towns such as Nervesa, Sernaglia and Moriago have in their names the "Battle" specification, emphasizing their first-line involvement in the Great War. Monuments, giant ossuaries and sanctuaries remember every day how thousands of men have fought here and in many cases lost their lives. Testimonies that can be found also in the countries along the banks of the "Sacred River to the Homeland", where the remains of tombstones and materials for the famous bridges of boats.

The Great War
Vittorio Veneto is a quiet town that rises among Treviso hills and the slopes of the Bellunesi Prealps. In Italy it is known to be the place where, in fact, the Great War ended with the victory of the Italian Army on the Austro-Hungarian one in October of 1918. Today it offers the opportunity to discover this important event thanks to the fascinating Museum of the Battle, housed in the rooms of the sixteenth-century palace of the Ceneda Community and recently reopened to the public. The idea was born in 1938 on the occasion of the twenty years of the victory. Luigi Marson, a "Boy of '99" from Vittorio Veneto, decided to donate to the community objects related to his war experience that, because of their importance, were exposed inside the palace. Subsequently, the museum was enriched thanks to other donations such as a collection of charts and official documents devolved by the Ministry of War itself and the collection of photographs by Luigi Marzocchi, the photographer of the Italian Supreme Command.
