The Via Vandelli goes from Modena to Massa Carrara, you walk on the traces of an eighteenth-century road that has always remained in the memory of the people who live in those areas. Around Castelnuovo di Grafagnana it is not so beautiful, unfortunately there are no alternative routes for those who go on foot. The other sections are very beautiful, challenging and rewarding. For further information on the worrying situation of the Massa-Carrara area, a starting point is the description of the No Cav movement on Wikipedia.
