The history and role of the bisse

At the letter R at the Bisse du Rho, meet Jacky Bagnoud, whose life has always been closely linked to water. He tells you how the Bisse du Rho was constructed, and about its use.

Jacky Bagnoud

Jacky Bagnoud was born in Icogne in December 1936. After primary school, which at that time lasted from November to the end of April, he found himself aged 15 wielding a pick and shovel as a building worker in order to help put food on the family table. So he was by no means predestined for a 32 year long political mandate, progressing from councillor to vice-president, then president of the commune of Icogne, and completing his career as president of the Coordination Commission for the Haut-Plateau Communes. A dedicated and passionate sportsman, he was a founding member and president of La Lienne-Icogne Ski Club, in charge of the youth (OJ) section. At 82, he still spends some sixty days of the year on skis, and covers over 10,000 km on his bike. He has however given up tennis.
