The river of forgetfulness

The connection between this town and the river that gave part of its name is very strong and, even today, we have to recognise the value added which is also an outstanding point for tourism and environment sectors.

Called Lethe - the River of Forgetfulness by the Romans (who believed that those who crossed would forever lose their memory), for centuries it watered our lands, supplied water for our homes and allows locals and visitors to bathe in it in the Summer, since it has fortunately not yet been touched by pollution.

Nautical sports are more and more practiced and this causes growing demand for the facilities provided for athletes and apprentices of different aquatic sports.
