Agricultural landscape
  Rural Landscape

The countryside between the rivers Oglio and Po is even and gentle, crossed by an ordered network of canals that provide enchanting scenery. Here, amidst quiet common sense, the fertile fields of Mantua and Cremona were shaped by the men who cultivated them. This is the agricultural landscape of Oglio Po: its water architecture (the pumping station of San Matteo delle Chiaviche in Viadana is of European importance) and the typical courtyards and farmsteads.
