ITALY, Alps. Pian Della Regina, Crissolo vicinity Saluzzo. Tumbling down the steep mountain side, the clear, fresh waters at the head of the River Po bring life to a marvellous variety of alpine flowers. The upper Po valley lost two thirds of its inhabitants, most of whom migrated to Turin early in the sixties. Now, very little affects the quality of the water for the first 20 Km, then a dam for hydrolelectric energy leaves the river virtually dry. CDREF00553.
