Created to regulate the flooding of the river, the Secchia River Floodplain has acquired well established naturalistic values of great interest. The territory of the Reserve, covering a surface of about 260 hectares, is characterized by the presence of permanent, fairly extensive stretches of water, interrupted by islets and tongues of land subject to periodic flooding, by a 4km length of the Secchia River, whose banks are covered in thick vegetation.
