Nature Educational Area
“Happiness is being with nature, seeing it and talking to it.” Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)
This trapezoid-shaped green space has a surface area of about 5,000 square metres and stands where there was once an orchard; following its abandon after the Second World War, it has renaturalised spontaneously.
The Guardie Ecologiche Volontarie (GEV – Voluntary Ecologic Guards) of the park have been committed to taking care of this little green area for naturalist purposes since the 1990s.
As a result of its particular history and inaccessibility, the GEV Wood has attracted many vegetable and animal species over time and has become a little treasure chest of the park, rich in biodiversity.
Various nesting species of birds have been reported such as the green woodpecker, and the fox, an elusive animal in the park, has also been documented. The green or western whip snake, which disappears very quickly indeed, and the red kite, a quite large bird of prey which is very difficult to find in highly urbanised areas, have also been seen.
Access by the public prohibited to enable the preservation of thi natural heritage.
Please admire the wood from outside, trying to listen to and recognise the different sounds of nature.
