Discovering the great river

The archive’s collection also includes the material from the research “Discovering the great river”, led in 2007. Researchers and students from the University travelled by bike from the source to the mouth of the great river Po, collecting memories and experiences of people living alongside it. Through these memories the archive offers a clear summary of the culture, economy, and extraordinary gastronomic and environmental heritage that distinguish the Po and its valley. This was a research project promoted by the University of Gastronomic Sciences.
