MAGIONE
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Up to 1995 there was only the short track, but many years before an extension was proposed: in Summer 1974 this proposal was deferred because of oil crisis, after it had already drawn (I have no maps and details) and land had already been bought. They hoped to start again working in the following Winter, but the track was lengthened only 20 years later.
