Province of Piacenza. Welcome to the Official Tourist Information SiteScudo Piacenza


The village is quite distant from the main lines of communication, and this territorys council is known above all for including Sant'Agata, small ward which, together with the very close wards of Roncole and Busset, constitues the so called Verdian Sites. Giuseppe verdis villa is in SantAgata. Here lived the master with his second wife Giuseppina Strapponi. Verdi was not only a composer, but also a landowner and a cattle breeder. The present economy is based mainly upon agriculture (fruit).
