This summer, churches and public halls, usually closed to the public, may be freely viewed, even through some lines of local public transport free of charge specifically designed for tourists. A cultural and tourist made possible by an unprecedented collaboration between local associations, parishes and municipal administration of Magione which will cover the capital and the villages of Montecolognola and Monte Sperello.
