A Journey Down the Po with Paolo Rumiz

A journey across Italy’s great river Po, undertaken by writer Paolo Rumiz together with explorer Valentina Scaglia, in the company of canoeists, boatmen, writers and fishermen. A journey made of encounters, food and adventures, rediscovering a wild stream of water. It is a story told from the perspective of the current, which travels towards the delta and its magnificent shores. Beyond those banks, lie Italy’s four most populous regions. Meanwhile, inside the river Po, an exquisite, secret, uncontaminated space opens up, radiating beauty, despite the environmental catastrophes caused by mankind.
