Between Emilia Romagna and Veneto
The Po Delta
The Po Delta is the set of river branches that from Monviso and through the Po Valley lead the Po into the North Adriatic Sea. Since 1999 the Po Delta has been included by UNESCO in the List of World Heritage Sites of Italy as an extension of the recognition given to the city of Ferrara in 1995. The unique profile of the Po Delta is characterized by a surprising landscape where nature, history, tradition and culture intertwine. The territory, created both by the slow sedimentation of the river and by the regulation of water and land reclamation over the centuries, is associated with protected natural areas such as the Po Delta Park. It is an area with unique environmental and ecological characteristics that embraces environments rich in biodiversity: from wetlands to pine forests, from brackish water to freshwater.
