(visited by Captain Peter)

08-Oct-2001 -- After having visited 42°N/12°E NNW of Rome at 0830hrs CEST I drove back on the State Road SS1 until the highway entrance of Cerveteri-Ladispoli and took the Highway Route A12 back to the Northern ring of Rome, from there I went on the Highway via Florence and Bologna in direction Padova and left the Highway Route A13 at the exit of Occhiobello. Thence I took the State Road SS16 until Polesella, and bent right into the Provincial Road SP33 in direction Adria. At 1400hrs CEST I stopped shortly after the tiny village of Villanova Marchesana and realized that it was mere farmland.

Several uncharted roads (but paved) were in the area, and after a little trying I found the one bringing me closest to the point. It was the via Peschiera. There I stopped the car, about 300 metres away from the point. I realized that I had to walk over another plowed field, similar to this in the morning near Rome.

Then I reached the point without difficulties. I made the photos in the 4 directions, but they look all same. I enclose South and West. After having completed my mission I had a drink.

As this point is in the noble Delta of the River Po, there is a lot of water and irrigation canals. There were no animals in the area, the typical plant is the reed (bamboo). On the picture you see big bamboo.
