Anybody who ever visited Val Trebbia certainly knows the bends, the canyons and the openings of route 45 (strada statale 45) which links Piacenza to Genoa, Emilia Romagna and Liguria, the inland and the sea.
The route is a vital communication network for the valley and is often talked about due to the lack of maintenance causing issues to the traffic and transport due to landslides occurring especially in the most inner parts of the route.
History unfolded along this route which also inspired poet Giorgio Caproni and was portrayed in Fabrizio Lo Presti’s documentary Statale 45. Io, Giorgio Caproni, route 45 is visited by tourists, commuters and all sorts of travelers every year.
Route of dreams to someone, route of hell for many others due to its never ending bends: what does route 45 represent for you?
