6- Along the Po di Volano: from Ostellato to Pomposa Abbey
...the route follows the Po di Volano, identified in the Etruscan period with the mythical Eridano. It visits Codigoro, whose name derives from Caput Gauri and indicates the point where the branch of the Po di Goro was born out of the left flank of the Po di Volano, more evidence of how everything in the Ferrarese lands is determined by the presence of water. The journey arrives finally at the splendid Pomposa Abbey, one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in north Italy.
