San Vito – Poggio Aquilone
This road, apart from the first stretch that follows the current provincial road, is very interesting. Until 1927 San Vito was a Municipality and Poggio Aquilone a village of it. We will travel along one of the two ancient municipal roads that connected these two centers.
From Baccano (San Vito in Monte) we proceed on the Provincial road that leads to Migliano until we find on our left a road towards the cemetery. We take it, then we skirt the cemetery and continue eastwards, downhill to find again the asphalt road. We reach a sharp left curve, at the beginning of which there is a dirt road ahead of us, going downhill. It is our track; we will never have to leave the most visible path. We thus reach an abandoned farmhouse (Podere Piano) and we continue downhill until we reach the Fersinone Torrent.
If this is wadable (in Summer), we can cross it and continue towards Poggio Aquilone which stands before us. Otherwise we wade the smallest tributary in front of us and go up following the road to the edge of a field; now the track is not there but leaving the stream on our left and continuing East, after about 200 meters we find a gravel road that we take to the left. We cross the bridge and continue to the right.
Here we have two possibilities: the simplest is to follow the current road, with hairpin bends. The most faithful to the past is steeper; to follow it, just keep an eye on the track. In short time we will be in Poggio Aquilone.
