Valle Zappa,
casone Zappa
Valle Zappa was once considered one of the richest marshlands for avifauna and, it is completely embanked (328 he). The present "Cason Zappa" built in a northern-gothic style reminds one of a Dutch hill-top castle and it was built between 1925 and 1928 following the project of architect Torres. The nearby tower is used both as an observatory to sight game and as a tank for water. On the principal fašade the coat-of-arms of "the Casone" which shows three hoes ("zappa" in Italian) stands out.
