In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.

Point of Interest map

Our itinerary continues towards Tremezzo. On reaching Mezzegra you come across a sign marked "Fatto storico" (historic site).

The municipality of Mezzegra, between Lenno and Tremezzo, is where Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his lover Claretta Petacci were shot on the morning of April 28th 1945 by Colonel Valerio, in Via 24 Maggio.
It was in the Giulino district of Mezzegra, at Via Riale 4, in the home of Giacomo De Maria, that the couple spent their last night. The house is close to a bend, and adjacent to an old public washing trough.
