Frana di San Cristoforo, Bobbio, Val Trebbia, Provincia di Piacenza, Emilia-Romagna, Italia


Once in Bobbio, continue on the ring road (along the river Trebbia) and in view of a large white statue (of Bishop Antonio Maria Giannelli), turn right to San Cristoforo (a hamlet of the municipality of Bobbio).
From the junction on the main road to the landslide, there are about four kilometers.
The landslide occurred in December 2010.

Furthermore, calcite in rock fissures is found along the road to San Cristoforo and, in the neighbourhood of the hamlet, along the flank of Monte Penice (Baldizzone, 2008).
