The Steam Locomotive



Azienda vinicola RomagnaIn the estate surrounding the winery "Case Marcosanti", an historical "Steam locomotive 740/192" built by the Breda company in 1913 is housed. It is a return to the past... a train called "desiderio" ("desire"), which turns into a spark capable of awakening forgot passions in the labyrinth of memories of the Antoniacci family.

The Locomotive 740/192 is now an historical memory. It has always been the protagonist of the Tino Antoniacci' tales who, in 1943 (then in his early twenties) in one of the many chariots cattle towed by the same kind of locomotive, was conducted in a concentration camp in East Prussia.

Now in Camerano, immediately next to the vineyards of the winery Case Marcosanti, in the small hamlet Poggio Torriana, the old locomotive is the "landlady" and represents a page of life of the Antoniacci family jealously preserved in the garden.
