The Vallazza in the Parco La Torretta is an 85-hectare area belonging to the “Giuseppe Massarenti” cooperative, on the road from Molinella to Selva Malvezzi.

Inside a perimeter of poplars, a thick tangle of marsh reeds surround a vast body of water, full of floating water lilies. It is an ideal habitat for frogs, turtles, grass snakes and other reptiles. Coots, grebes and various species of ducks often nest here and it is not rare to come across majestic herons.

The old “maceri” (rettingpits) for hemp are also a biological system of surprising richness, characterized by oaks, willows, reed-thickets and wild flowers.
