Visit to the Culatello Museum and Po Forest – Route 2

A permanent exhibition itinerary, commissioned by the Spigaroli family, linked to a tradition excavated in the heart of the Bassa and the history of the family. A path that winds inside and outside the Ancient Court among ancient maps, documents, photographs, videos, multimedia equipment and objects related to rural civilization, up to the ancient aging cellars.

The Culatello Museum has an open air extension called PO FOREST. A beautiful 1.5 km outdoor course, divided into 12 stages to discover the forest, the Po river floodplain and our wild breeding black pigs. A walk through history, culture and nature told in the audio guide and on the ad hoc brochure, which can be bought with just one euro more than the admission ticket to the Museum, thus contributing to the maintenance of the route.
