Autumn 1943, a young Anti-Fascist named Manrico Ducceschi climbs into the mountains to fight the Nazi-Fascist oppressor; he spent his youth on the Pistoia mountains and it was from these areas that he decided to start his activity as a Partisan. Between October 1943 and March 1944, various young people gathered around him who will give life to the XI Patriots Zone, having chosen the battle name '' Pontito '', the Myth begins.

The excursion starting from the Castella di Pontito will take us to the Penna di Lucchio and to the town of Lucchio, where '' Pontito '' had the support of the local shepherds.

We will cross places with a unique flavor and history on ancient paths to be tasted!
