Wat je gaat doen

Our experience starts in Brovello, a tiny village known for being the birthplace of many umbrella-makers. Just a short walk from Brovello’s centre on a nature path, characterized by an ancient stone bridge, we reach the village of Graglia and its picturesque church with a Romanesque campanile. Our hike continues following the traces of the ancient local umbrella-makers, who walked through these leafy woods to reach near and far towns to repair umbrellas. After 1 hour and a half light hike we arrive in Gignese, a small town known as the“Umbrella-makers’ homeland”, where we visit the“Umbrella and Parasol Museum”. Located in a building shaped by three open umbrellas, the museum houses around 1500 pieces and hosts a sector dedicated to the life of the umbrella-makers. With a brief tour through the museum, Chiara introduces you to the stories, the tools, and the extraordinary self-invented jargon of the umbrellas-makers. After visiting the museum our hike continues for about 1 hour on a green path with wonderful views over Lake Maggiore to go back to Brovello. At the end of our hike, we have earned the "umbrella-maker's snack" with a local winemaker in a unique location, where the producer managed to make the centuries old wine production alive again after having been forgotten for a hundred years.
Nature, history, and local products are the keywords of our authentic experience.

Hi everybody and welcome to the Alto Vergante area.

We are Chiara and Davide, a couple in both life and work. We both are official Italian tour guides with a great passion for the traditions and the products of our territory. After spending several years abroad working in the tourism business, we decided to come back home full of enthusiasm about recounting our country and starting new adventures!

Now we would love to let you discover our leafy region with a light trekking in the footsteps of our ancient umbrella-makers, typical roving artisans of this territory since the 1700s. Chiara's ancestors also worked as umbrella-makers and walked through near and far towns to seek their fortune. Our unique experience offers you the chance to discover the territory, the history and the food of these extraordinary artisans.

Unser Ausflug mit Chiara und Davide war rundum gelungen. Auf einer Entdeckerreise durch den Wald, auf den Spuren der Schirmmacher, zeigte uns Chiara außergewöhnliche Orte, fernab des touristischen Trubels. Neben vielen Informationen und Geschichten über die Tradition der Schirmmacher wurde der Tag durch eine Weinprobe abgerundet. Diese war ein weiteres Highlight. Das Weingut von Claudio liegt absolut versteckt mitten im Wald und ähnelt einer paradiesischen Oase. Hier durften wir herrliche Weine probieren und wurden sehr gastfreundlich von Claudios Familie bewirtet. Alles in Allem war es ein überaus gelungener Tag!
