A story of lands of water between rice and folk songs
Our travel will follow the plain of Vercelli, a little known land but witness of a strong and rooted history.
In the morning we will visit Vercelli, a stroll with our expert guide that will touch all the fascinating and rich point of history: the beautiful “Basilica of Sant’Andrea”, the “Duomo of Sant’Eusebio”, the Synagogue, the “Salone Dugentesco” and finally “Piazza Cavour”, with its historic cafes and its antique shops and, under the arcades, a delicious scent of cinnamon will lead you to “Pasticceria Taverna & Tarnuzzer”, known and appreciated for many specialties but particularly for the dry biscuits “Biciolani”, symbol of Vercelli, so much that during the Carnival the most important male character is called “Biciolano” (but this is another story).
The stop for the launch in an inn where we will be delighted by a menu that, from the appetizers to the dessert, will follow a single thread, his Majesty the rice.
In the afternoon the tour will continue with a full immersion in the “lands of the water”, through the spectacular scenario of the rice paddies.
We will visit an ancient estate dating back to about five centuries ago and that now hosts the Ecomuseum of the rice paddy.
In this magnificent place out of time, will await us “il Mario”, an extraordinary
person that at the age of 8 brought the magazines to the young “mondine”, the only one authorized to enter in the dorm room, a great man that with a patient and meticulous work, has recreated all the atmosphere of the time, from houses to artisans’ workshops, rebuilt with authentic furnitures and relocated in their original location. An authentic journey with the time machine, for an interactive dive in a time that marked forever the history of this land.
In the evening return to Turin.
