The Forest of Camaldoli
To talk about the spiritual, technical and social relationship between the hermit monks of Camaldoli with the forest as ancient as the Appennino tosco-romagnolo - a forest which welcomed them and that they preserved - means to draw our own attention to ten centuries of history, that is from 1012 when the first monks settled here, until 1866, when the Hermitage, the Monastery and the Forest became property of the new State of Italy.
