Artistical experiences Giovannino guareschi: writer and the father of don camillo and peppone...
guida turistica parma

Giovannino Guareschi used irony to portray the postwar era in Italy, the political opposition and the economic situation.

His children have lovingly maintained the Giovanni Guareschi museum in Roncole Verdi, where numerous original documents, photos and articles will give you an in-depth understanding of his life and work. Another museum in Fontanelle (Guareschi’s birthplace) is dedicated to the local area, its people and its history, and will give you a better understanding of the setting described by the writer. We end our visit in Brescello, which was the set for the Italian movie series based on his books about the priest Don Camillo and the communist major Peppone.
