Photographer's Note

Noi che siamo nati pi vicino alle montagne la chiamiamo con un certa aria di superiorita "la Bassa".

La Bassa vercellese risaia ed affascinante almeno in 3 momenti:

in primavera quando i campi vengono allagati,
in autunno quando il riso maturo ondeggia al vento come un'unica massa bruna e infine, in certe giornate estive limpide e ventilate, assai rare per, quando il verde delle piantine ormai uscite dall'acqua risplende sotto i raggi del sole.

Ma noi che siamo nati vicino alle montagne ci lamentiamo per le zanzare e diciamo che la colpa delle risaie.




We who are born close to the mountains, used to call it with a certain attitude of superiority "La Bassa" (Flatland).

La Bassa near Vercelli is made of rice field and is fascinating in three different moments at least:

in spring when the fields are flooded,

in autumn before harvest when the rice waving as one dark mass, and finally, in some clear and windy summer days, although rare, when the green of the plants now out of the water shining under the rays of the sun.

But we who are born close to the mountains just complain for mosquitoes and blame it to the rice fields.
