In the past decades, people used to tell legends at night around the fire. The darkness was inspiring and the lack of the TV encouraged this kind of activities. This time, beyond the walk in paths and streets, another itinerary has been programmed: an imaginary walk between stars and planets. This has been possible thanks to the contribution of Francesco Fratini and Michele Bigeli from the Community Astro Photography F&M in partnership with N.A.S.A. – (Nuova Associazione Senigallia Astrofilli).
Along the path, there will be the possibility of contemplating the starry sky with the help of some astronomy experts, in the hope that the weather will be assisting us. The path is 4km long approximately. The difference in height is 120m. The walk is suitable for everyone, including children who love walking (strollers are not recommended). A night walk filled with some legends about our places, enriched with suggestions on stars, planets and more. For those who are interested in participating, the walk, which will last about 2 hours, will bring you to the tower at the entrance of the Landroni. Here, it will be possible to observe the sky through a telescope generously provided by the experts.
The initiative is promoted by “Hiking 6 zampe”, ass. Ge. St. O. with the patronage of the city of Corinaldo and thanks to the collaboration of some members of N.A.S.A.
The anti-Covid measures must be respected. We strictly recommend the participants to wear a face mask and to bring a torch or a mobile phone provided with a torch. The wear of tennis or trekking shoes is mandatory.
