The spectacular Piazza Matteotti, built by Giulio Brunelli in 1587, reflects the layout of the ancient Piazza d'Armi. Not far away is the church of St. Nicholas, built in the eighteenth century on a pre-existing fifteenth century site. Inside, there are works of great artistic interest, including an "Annunciation" attributed to Altobello Melone and an "Ecce Homo" by Bernardino Campi. Isola Dovarese is home to the famous Palio delle Contrade. Among the events of agricultural tradition, the Carnevale del Quinto Quarto, which refers to the use of the poorer parts of the pig in traditional Po Valley dishes (everything, in the rural world, with its times of need, was worth almost the same as the more noble and valuable parts of the animal).
