The Po Delta Profile
The logo of Parco Regionale Veneto del Delta del Po encloses all the projects of environmental and economic enhancement of the area.
The Po Delta stretches out in the Adriatic Sea as a triangle whose axis coincides with the central branch of Po di Venezia, exactly on the 45th parallel - which is the same one of Turin - and whose sides run in the north along the river Adige and in the south along Po di Goro.
The identity of the Po Delta is represented by its geographical definition: the well-known characteristic protrusion of the upper part of the Italian boot.
Such profile represents both the landscape created by the river sedimentation and the work of man, who has controlled the waters and drained the land during the centuries.
Therefore, the territory becomes the symbol of the Park and represents the role of the homonymous Authority which, in accordance with its establishment law, is committed both to defend the natural environment and promote all compatible economic activities developing in the area.
In other words, the unquestionably unique shape of the Po Delta represents the features of a unique landscape of land and water and the strength of a lively economy obtaining fine vegetable and fruit products from the dune strip, rice and other cereals from land reclamation, fish and mussels going all around the world from the lagoons, and a tourism based on the respect for the environment from the beaches, woodlands, and the gentleness of the landscape.
