Being divided by a scarp from the rest of the viallge, not everyone is aware of how this once 'protected area ' is being taken over.
This ditch is actually all that remains of the Canale Ducale built in mid 15th century to take water from the river out into the plain. There are still a few working watermills along its length, including one in our village for grinding animal feed. In another area it crosses the built up area on a medieval viaduct. In the summer it is full of rushing water.
