Caption

The river that crosses the town of Parma traditionally acts as a cultural border between people "ded'sà da l'acqua" ("on this side of the water") and "ded'là da l'acqua" ("on the other side of the water"). This way of saying used to symbolize the physical and social distance that, until the middle of the 20th century, separated those living on the wealthy eastern bank of the river from those on the poor, dirty and dangerous district of the "Oltretorrente".

When viewing this panorama you are standing "on this side of the water", initially watching the houses "on the other side": the bridge you see is the most ancient and fascinating of Parma, the "Ponte di Mezzo". The panorama was shot at sunrise, so that you can see the border replicated in the sky: the hot morning light that starts to shine "on this side", against the cool shade of the night that still dominates "the other side".
