A rare event and a pleasure to watch
An old thresher powered by a old trastor
were put in full operation .

We could see how threshing was done.
The machine would come to the village/town and all the farmers would bring their corn to be threshed.

The thresher and the tractor were made by  ORSI  in Tortona (locally).  The tractor - ORSI- (testa Calda) has a single cylinder engine and took over 1/2 hour to warm up with a gas stove underneath the head before it could be started up, a very rare site.

Obviously all this was thirsty work wine and local food was in abundance to replenish the people
