"Returning to the main road connecting Casale Monferrato-Valenza, the long straight that runs along the stretch of plain is characterized by the cultivation of poplars. Opposite Bozzole there is the Hill of Parkes, dominated by the Castle; tightens the flat Strip, moving closer to the river than the levee does not see. The serpentine belt of the stream Grana runs along a stretch of road (here lies BARBISA n.d.r. at Km 74) and ends in Valenza his run towards the Po. Entering in Valenza you will notice on the right an area of building expansion in residential and productive, organized according to the trend of "deep valley". Going into the Centre of Valenza and following the old walls along the steep hilly Ridge, arrived at the Belvedere you will see large tracts of the valley below, the Po, the Lomellina. In the plain below over the stream Grana there is a communal area, once the site of the wells of the aqueduct, now decommissioned. The area has been subject to an intervention of the institution-which led to the formation of a Forest Park development crossed by avenues, a picnic area and an equipped route. Going down to the area, which is called "Bosco Musolino", you will see well the escarpment alluvial shelf once again, appreciating Polygenic selection criteria which led to build raised places. "
