This country, 714 meters on the sea level, is almost perceived
by every point of the Garfagnana and it lies on a buttress
of the Appennino on the back of a mountain that degrades
up to the bed of the river Serchio toward the country of
Ceserana and Fosciandora.
Sillico is only a small fraction of Pieve Fosciana and dists
from Castelnuovo of Garfagnana 9 kilometers.
From here ancient wayfarers passed
and then stopped. In the centuries they crossed the street
Vandelli from Castelnuovo of Garfagnana to Modena. In the
Medieval, Sillico was the richest fraction and better cultivated
of the zone: stains of beech trees and ample alpeggi for
the livestock, and fields cultivated on terrazzamenti that
also today withstand the time. They are the gardens and
the pastures of “sillichini” with their flocks
and cows to the pasture.
