Thanks to the Cartographic Archive of the Emilia-Romagna Region, plenty of publications and maps will be available during the festival that allow everybody to venture into surrounding territory also independently.
Surroundings: Gessi Bolognesi Natural Park (Bologna’s Gypsum Park)
The red dot shows Reno Folk Festival location: from there you can access one of the largest natural parks of the region with a beautiful karst landscape, in just ten minutes walking time.
