The route winds through the city's thermal ring, between boulevards, parks and historic gardens. Focus of the itinerary are the spa buildings Berzieri and Zoja, a short distance from each other that represent a net antithesis of styles. The Berzieri Baths, unique and inimitable in the Art Nouveau style, tell the magnificence of a historical past of high artistic value; The Zoja Baths in modern style, more sober and linear in form represent the conception of the architecture of the seventies of the twentieth century. Both buildings, however, reflect the great value that was given to the City of Salsomaggiore and its thermal waters, a source of well-being and being well off naturally. Salsomaggiore's thermal waters are mineral waters rich in iodine, bromine, sulfur and calcium from which in the past a food salt called "Niveo" marketed in Italy was also obtained. The thermal waters salso bromine iodiche are indicated for both spa treatments for certain pathologies and for wellness treatments at the spa spa.
