Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May is dedicated to the discovery of the Rocche di Caterina, a fascinating tour of the four Sforza castles of Bagnara di Romagna, Dozza, Imola and Riolo Terme, organized by IF Imola Faenza Tourism Company in collaboration with the four municipalities involved.
The "Experimenta": power, beauty and medicine
Madonna Caterina was passionate about herbal medicine from a very young age: she cultivated this passion throughout her life by writing down the recipes in a sort of diary, which came to us in a copy drawn up by a friend of her son Giovanni dalle Bande Nere. A fundamental document for understanding the scientific knowledge of a period in which alchemy and medicine, astrology and astronomy were not yet separated, with particular attention to the concept of beauty, male and female, of the time. At the end of the visit, adults and children can try their hand at making one of Caterina's recipes.
