THE ROUTE OF BRICKS
So we call the area of the furnaces that offers the opportunity for a mixed path, on foot or by bike. For the cycle path you start from Garbagnate, from the "Serenella" station of the Ferrovie Nord Milano, going south-east along a cycle path along the Villoresi canal. From via Fametta then you reach the Castellazzo. Going along the walls of VillaArconati-FAR and crossing the woods, following the secondary canal of Villoresi, you reach a drainage canal, then turn left along the towpath of the Villoresi Canal to get to the FNM station of Bollate Nord. The itinerary (5 Km) can be covered on foot in about an hour. You can return to the starting point (FNM "Serenella" station of Garbagnate). Just cross the railway, reach the Paderno road for 400 m. up to a medieval oratory. Here you take the provincial road to Senago on the left. At the first corner, after a straight stretch of almost 2 km, take Via Isolino on the left that leads to an active kiln. Going on, you go along a path that runs alongside the very high chimney of the former Parodi kiln (example of an Hoffman oven in excellent condition) and which leads to the Villoresi Canal. Following the cycle path on the left side of the canal to the left, you return to the railway track and to the Serenella station. The itinerary can be covered in less than an hour.
