Outdoor Experience - Smugglers' experience

A full day following Chitignano smugglers' story. Life in mountain at the beginning of the 20th century was not an easy game to play.

The tobacco and gun powder monopoly, introduced to have a market regulation for sensitive goods, damaged a community that based almost 2oo years of his economy around these products. Let's visit together the hidden places where gun-powder was secretly produced and then smuggled through secondary routes in the forest
