Question 1: How long takes to learn the Oltrepò Pavese? One hour, two, a year or maybe not enough? Answer: he Oltrepò know walking. Is not the answer you were expecting? Not the fact is, does not provide numbers, but a mode.

Question 2: How long does it take to find out who are born in Oltrepò orchids, find them, wonder and turn them into memory? You can not quantify the time of an orchid. Even that of a castle, a tower, a square and the sea on the horizon. Just the sea? That's him. By the green and the sea can be seen on the other side, to the north, you see the plain, the Po and the Alps.

Question 3: How long does it take for a taste, a wine, a recipe, the rite of a renovated old canteen? The time to understand them, know them and give in to the feeling. And this time, naturally, has no hands. Someone calls them "assets", someone "traditions" are the soul of a place, its identity.
