The territory

Trino is "Italy’s rice capital" since the fifteenth century, when its cultivation, still characteristic of this area and globally competitive, was first introduced in Italy.
The territory of the municipality of Vercelli also hosts the Natural Park of the Wood of Sorti Partecipanza Trino, often referred to as "green raft" between the expanses of paddy fields, which is a rare example of Italian plain wood and allows to see still today what the Po Valley was like before the change wrought over he centuries by agricultural activities.
