    Romano welcomed us with warmth and passion drove us in the Museum of objects and documents collected over a lifetime, about the pontoon bridge where his father and grandfather had worked. A visit that I suggest everyone!

    Very fascinating to see what was a bridge on ships, especially after the famous scene from the movie Don Camillo ... Pleasant walk along the path.

    One might say for 60 square meters and a photo and a mannequin. Yes, because Romano Gialdini, likable 80nne manages to tell the story of this bridge, no longer exists, before and after "work for a thousand anecdotes, seasoned Pontiere" and he himself is the ultimate "Pontiere" in life. Romano explained for more than an hour the Museum and the life that he and his father before him and before that his grandfather. Everything by hand without electronics, the Po River has a range of approximately 1500 litres/second and open the bridge for passing boats and close it manually, counterflow, was not an easy task. Stunning photographs of bathing style shoes when he was with cabins and Rimini, now I donot. All phases of construction of the pontoon bridge, photographs from when you began your new one, next to each other. Celebrities, all floods which the Po River to marked this area, objects that we used the "Pontieri." All expertly narrated by a great "old man" named Roman. If you are from around here, you will be fascinated by this man's dedication, of his family, workmates, for this activity ... that after him there will be no more ... The area is visible and points along the way, Via Cisa Embankment, just after the trattoria del pesce. Small area for kids, and also beautiful path along much of the Po. One thing, unfortunately Mr. Romano Gialdini lately is not well, I'm not talking about an ordinary flu, so maybe if you plan to visit the facility, please call first. Roman a hug and thanks for the last full hour together.
