e-borghi travel 8, Taste and villages: In the land of rice

It’s a game of reflections of water, land and sky that cuts the horizon in the stretch of land between Novara, Vercelli and Lomellina, an area that is well known for the production of rice. It’s an area of plains that are crossed by the canals and the rows and are spotted with farms, parish churches, mills and castles to be discovered all through the year, on your table as well. It’s a sort of mirror that puts together the plain and the sky, an unexpected show before the rice fields. You can see it in Spring when the water fills the fields and the little plants that give their best fruit in Autumn, precious grains of rice that represent the final step of one of the most important productions of the made in Italy. The rice fields show different landscapes and when the days get shorter between September and October the temperature is perfect to taste a dish of hot risotto. The areas between Novara, Vercelli and Lomellina are featured by a production of rice that goes back to the ancient ages, you can discover the customs and the places and have a slow holiday to wake up your senses and enjoy the pleasure of the culture, the nature and the food. Between Piedmont and Lombardy there is a web filled with water and soil that are sometimes mixed up and they draw stretches of land spread with farms, it’s an amazing glance where the details stand out. Between the irrigation canals, the banks, the trees, the storks and the herons.
