canyon exploring with Michele Angileri
The hills surrounding Fosso della Pasquarella are characterized by karst phenomena.
There is certainly a vast network of tunnels underground: this is testified by the air that comes out strong from the Buche del Vento (Holes of the wind),
it's witnessed by the Vorgozzo, the great chasm hidden in the middle of the dense woods that cover the hills, it's certified by the absence of water
in the streams that descend steeply towards the main valley.
I remember ...
When I went to the Pasquarella hermitage for the first time, I noticed a narrow gorge beside the church, a dry gorge ending in the square where you leave the car.
The gorge, however, was very short, with only one little waterfall at the beginning. Upstream it was a wide valley through the woods.
