Liberty style in San Pellegrino:
The elegant litlle town of San Pellegrino Terme, in Val Brembana, which during the twentieth century became a favorite high society holiday spot but was already known for the healing powers of its waters in the Middle Ages, still calls to mind luxurious scenes of the Belle Epoque.
Must see: the Grand hotel and the Town Casinò
Visit the Clock Tower and the church of Santa Maria Assunta, where the precious high altar, sculpted by Andrea Fantoni, and the altarpiece depicting the Assumption of Mary, a masterpiece by the celebrated Venetian painter Sebastiano Ricci, are to be seen.
Do not miss the fifteenth-century Oratory of the Disciplines, on whose façade a highly expressive fresco cycle unfolds illustrating the theme of death after the typical fashion of the medieval imagination.
Lorenzo Lotto itinerary:
There are Lorenzo Lotto's paintings not just in Bergamo, but also in several villages around the bergamask province: Ponteranica, Sedrina, Trescore Balneario, redaro and Celana.
Cornello dei Tasso:
One of the major interesting tourist spots of the media half Brembana Valley is the Historical-artistic itinerary between Oneta of San Giovanni Bianco and Cornello dei Tasso, along Via Mercatorum, an ancient muletrack connecting Bergamo to Valtellina.
At Oneta there is the House of Arlecchino (Harlequin), a 15th century nobleman’s building with elegant frescoes portraying the great and famous interpreter of the Bergamo mask, who apparently dwelt in this house.
Visit Cornello dei Tasso and Bretto historic hamlets, including Museum of Tasso family and of Postal History and discover the homeland of the Tasso family, who founded a successful courier company
