Valentino Park is located along the west bank of the Po river. The river is Italy's longest river, at 405 miles (652 kilometres) long and 1,650 feet (503 metres) across at its widest point. The Po's waters, fed by 141 tributaries draining a catchment basin of 27,000 square miles (70,000 square kilometres), created the Val Padana, the plain that stretches across northern Italy from the French border on the west to the Adriatic Sea on the east. More than 16 million people – nearly a third of all Italians – live in this fertile expanse, some of the most heavily cultivated land in Europe.
