The Old Port

In the Po floodplain, there are places known only to those fishermen and boatmen who explore the river bends. One of these places is the “Porto Vecchio” (old port), where nowadays it is possible to find the wreck of a tugboat and two small boats (bettoline), later bombed by an American plane in spring 1944.
