Bertinoro and Villa Silvia

route C2

Part of route C2 runs through the municipal area of Cesena, leading to Villa Silvia, an Eighteenth Century building named after Countess Silvia Baroni.

The Countess’s summer residence, it soon became a favourite holiday and meeting place for famous personalities including the poet Giosuè Carducci, who chose to end his days here.

The villa is open to visitors, who are able to stroll through its botanical grounds, with an impressive variety of native and exotic trees.

The villa houses a Museo degli Strumenti Musicali Meccanici (Museum of Mechanical Musical Instruments), including a reconstruction of the Mechanical Drum designed by Leonardo Da Vinci.
