Monte Sole Park 

Situated in the Bolognese Apennines between the Setta and Reno rivers, Monte Sole offers superb trails for hikers, mountain bike enthusiasts and horseback riders. The Park is also linked to the Marzabotto massacre, one of the most horrendous pages of Italian history. On this site, in 1944, the Nazis killed hundreds of civilians. The Park was inaugurated in 1989 to commemorate and honor the victims of the event with the dual purpose of making the territory available for public usage and for spreading the message of peace. Direct testimony is the basis of the Scuola di Pace   School of Peace --  set up to promote teaching and training initiatives dedicated to non-violence, human rights and peaceful coexistence among people of different cultures.
