Why is this landfill in the splendid valley of the Gracciata River called Belladanza (Beautiful Dance)? Because for decades, in a house that still exists on the edge of the landfill, people of the area, from Citta di Castello to Umbertide, came to dance and to enjoy themselves. For generations Belladanza was a symbol of joy and happiness. Then came the excavation of a quarry, and with the quarry the nightmare began, as later it became the landfill Belladanza. In order to understand the horror of Belladanza it is necessary to be aware of its joyous history and to experience the beauty that surrounds it, which are in poignant contrast to the hideousness of the landfill.
