The land of the farm has included poplar groves since the early 1900s: they look like green bands between natural and cultivated areas, crossed by dirt roads and ditches that allow excess rainwater to drain.
The fauna of the floodplain areas of the Po river is rich and varied, including many species of birds - either seasonal, such as great egrets and ospreys, or non-migratory. The Italian agile frog, regarded as a sign of good environmental conditions, is also typical of the area adjacent to the Parco Oglio Sud, and among the species to be protected.
The river has always been a point of reference for settlements, trade and crops, and its territory is rich in historical evidence dating back to remote times: finds of the Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements detected in the area are now kept in the civic museums of Piadena, Viadana and Asola, while the traces of the Roman centuriation, based on which the hydraulic and road networks have been built over the centuries, are still visible in the landscape.
Symbols of more recent history are the bridge of Torre d'Oglio and the drainage plant of San Matteo delle Chiaviche, a beautiful example of industrial architecture from the first half of the 20th century.
