The Po', watched by his principle embankment, flows from Cremona city outskirts, while the Adda river flows into it just a bit upper. The country around is fertile and fecund. Most of the industrial and commercial activities are based on agriculture. The Torrazzo gothic cusp, visible anywhere in the Po Valley, discloses the city from faraway and recalls one of the most beautiful square in Italy.

Cremona does not forget the river, grateful for what it has represented for the city history. The spare time activities and the pleasure boating take place in fluvial port and in the navigable canal. It frequently happens to see on the Po' beaches a seemingly abandoned rowing boat, moored and dinghy rocked by the flows, which may convey a sense of solitude even though it is a sign of vitality.

Even if since many year is prohibited to swim in the Po', the river people cannot help crossing those fascinating flows. Cremona People tie to the river is ancient.
