Photographer's Note

The vast valley around the Po is called the Po Valley.
The two main economic uses of the valley are for industry and for agriculture, both major uses. The moist and fertile river bottom is reserved mainly for agriculture and is subject to flash floods. The main products of the farms around the river are cereals including rice, which requires heavy irrigation.
Sacca degli Scardovari is a kind of marine gulf bounded by the Po della Donzella and the Po di Tolle. Its perimeter is approx. 20 km and its depth is approx. 1.50 m. Mussels are farmed here, which attach themselves to hundreds orange networks supported by sturdy wooden stakes driven into the seabed.
