Mezzano has roughly 1600 inhabitants and is mentioned in the list of the “Most beautiful villages in Italy”.

Typical elements of the village are its rural aspect, which has remained intact through time, the inscriptions and different religious themed paintings that can be admired on the houses’ façades and the many vegetable gardens, roughly 400, that form the green heart of Mezzano.

At just a short distance from Mezzano village there are wonderful places, such as the church of San Giovanni, at an altitude of 1175 meters, in the Prati Lièndri district, which can be reached in an hour on foot along a paved road that starts from the centre of Mezzano.
