Along the Po Piacentino
The river Po tells the story of Piacenza and municipalities that are followed along its course, from Caorso to Monticelli in Castelvetro Piacentino, which marks the border between Emilia Romagna and Lombardy, between the provincial territories of Piacenza and Cremona.
Along this evocative you can feel the atmosphere of the great river views that provoke strong emotions, leaving your mind free to wander, to try to imagine when this waterway was once an artery of communication vital to the economy of nations, for the culture of a people.
A visit to these places is to understand the most recondi implications of the recent past, where our grandparents imbracciavano sickles to work with the sheer force of arms a land hostile to many places where our ancestors faced its waters and on board small boats to return with a catch that was dinner for the whole family.
Along the Po lie still many of these ancient images, protected over time by an unfailing light rarefied, in the warm months in the heat that surrounds the great river, in the cold months for the mist that penetrates the bones and drawing views of a suggestion unparalleled.
