Detti del mese
Maggio regala gelsomini e rose. Allieta i bimbi e le future spose.
Maggio tutto vento, più paglia che frumento
La pioggia di San Bernardino, ruba pane, olio e vino.
Pioggia di maggio, parola di saggio.

Typical wines and foods
Rice: The cultivation of rice is the strongest agricultural tradition in the territory of  Novara.
For more than five centuries the phases of rice cultivation have influenced the lifestyle of the local population along the year. Today  technology has reduced the number of rice farmers, the extension of the paddy-fields still characterise the plains of the region. 
Each phase of rice cultivation,  from the preparation of the soil to the harvest, passing through sowing and flooding-creates different atmospheres, suggests a wide variety of  emotions.
