Inwards the “Bosco delle Sorti della Partecipanza di Trino”, discovering the last example of the forests which once filled the Vercelli plain, cut down in Medieval times during reclaim works.
This itinerary twists and turns across the “Bosco della Partecipanza” (Participating Wood) in Trino.
This Park is a natural protected area in Piedmont established in 1991. It takes up 584,58 hectares in Vercelli province.
During the Roman period the wood was sacred, probably to Apollo God. The park protects what remains on Montarolo hill of huge forests which covered the plain near Vercelli, which were destroyed in medieval times during recovery works. The “Partecipanza” was the group of families who Bonifacio I, Monferrato Marquis, gave license fee to in 1202.
