In full view from the A13, the Italian toll road that runs through the vast Po River Valley from nearby Padova down to Bologna, stands an interesting series of conical peaks known as the Colli Euganei (Euganean Hills).
Eighty-one hills, ranging between 300 and 600m tall, rise up shoulder-to-shoulder in what is now the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills, the very first regional park of the Veneto. It is among these peaks, actually one of their valleys, where I hang my hat.
