CASTELVETRO PIACENTINO

Description

Located on the right bank of the river Po, it's much more connected to Cremona than Piacenza; in fact, in Roman times it belonged to Cremona's Municipium. Castelvetro was born as outpost on the remains of medieval fortressess known as castrum vetus. The reclaim of the area was started by Nonantola Abbey's monks and was then completed by Chiaravalle's Benedictine friars: the huge banks gave it a typical lombardic aspect. The economy of the area is based upon agriculture, trade and industry.
