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
