The Calvana ridge

The Calvana way

The Calvana is a long chalky ridge which slopes down for over 20 km from the Apennines to the Prato plain. This positioning turns its meadows into an escape valve for the citizens of Prato, who re-climb its slopes for a great variety of reasons, be it relaxation or work. In fact even today, here there is a flourishing industry of sheep, beef and horse raising, and it is therefore extremely easy to find animals reared in their wild state.
