Baiardo and the Druids

“Baiardo and the Druids” was the theme of a conference held in Baiardo (near Sanremo) on Sunday the 6 May by Prof. Pistone.
Compared to other villages in the region, Baiardo enjoys a distinctive ancient history, supported by numerous archaeological and documented discoveries in the last ten years.
The local oral tradition evokes the presence of the wise Druids at the top of the hill overlooking the village, near the remains of the church erected purposely to erase the memory of their presence.
Prof. G. Pistone is well known for his diligent work, spanning half a century, researching the signs and the vestiges of the local history. The conference, organised by the municipality of Baiardo was well received and attended.
