OP07 - The cremonese Oglio

Once again, the waters of the Oglio river, while shaping the landscape along their path, seem to attempt to soften the memories of the disputes over this borderland due to the presence of different dominations, often in conflict with each other.Yet, in the villages along our route, the signs of the past are very much alive and recognizable. For instance from the ruins of the Castello di Ostiano or the marvellous square of Isola Dovarese still echo the deeds of the powerful Gonzagas of Mantua, or from the villa of Torre de' Picenardi, built for the homonimous Cremonese family. The visitor will thus be able to enjoy those traditions and monuments, which are tangible marks of times now gone.
