A middle distance race of Italian Cup (Coppa Italia) will be held on the map Bosco di Annibale (=Hannibal's Forest) near Rovegno in Val Trebbia (Trebbia Valley) in northern Italy on Sunday, April 22th. Most of the work was done by Rudi Ferrari and Martin Lejsek. I revised/remapped a piece of Italian Augusto Cavazzani's well-done part of the older o-map Rovegno - Cascina Morca (1991) in last September. Beside Cavazzani, six Czech mapmakers and also the legendary Finn Hannu Mähönen participated in making this large previous map (12km²). Follow the Rudi's blog (in Italian) to learn of an ancient as well as a newer orienteering history of Val Trebbia. Sunday's race is a part of Liguria 2012 - series of competitions and trainings in 5 days. For example there will be a regional championship of Liguria on our last year's map Monte della Cavalla on Saturday.
A 5-days competition in the summer 2013 will be the next major o-event in this area (in the period just before World Masters Games - including orienteering - in Torino, 200 km from there). A month ago, I together with Milan Bílý mapped another area just next to the Bosco di Annibale map near the Pietranera village for the fifth stage of the 5-days. The last remaining and, as Rudi said, the most interesting map should be done in the fall.
