Photographer's Note

The Brembana Valley is a hard but generous land to those who can appreciate and love it.
As you reach the Ventulosa of Villa D'Alme' you are in the Brembana Valley. Turning right along Botta di Sedrina, at about two kilometres, you get to Sedrina. Here you can visit the wonderful church built by Mario Codussi (who also built lots of monuments in Venice as well) where you can find an important Lorenzo Lotto's masterpiece. The road you are driving on follows the line of the ancient Priula road but soon it will be substituted by a new clearway. Along this road you can see the oldest bridge of the Valley. It has a lot of little arches and from here Pacì Paciana better known as the Padrù, the "owner", of the Brembana Valley throw himself into the river. He was a highway man whose life became a legend. Turning on your left, you reach Brembilla a very labourious village. Following the road you get to the vast and green valley of Zogno. Zogno with more than 10.000 inhabitants, industries and offices is the chief town of the whole Valley. Zogno has also a lot of hamlets settled near green grazings and woods. The big cross of Canto Alto watches over the whole valley of Zogno. Here tourists can visit the "Museum of the Valley", a monumental area near the church and the monastery of Romacolo. You cannot help visiting the church of Grumello de Zanchi where you can find some precious paintings of De Pieri. Then in Stabello you can also see a well-preserved romanic church.
