  • If you love nature this is the place for adults and children, in the dunes you can encounter flora and fauna that you usually don't see every day, in spring you can smell some species of flowers and plants and see insects or animals living freely as the Fox, a walk in silence.

  • Fossil dunes represent the ancient border between land and sea, before the Po, with the transport of debris towards the mouth, constituted the current lands deltaic shifting this way far ahead the coastline. They are therefore of "historical snapshot" indispensable for understanding the evolution of the Delta. Thanks to historical sources and the numerous archaeological finds during various excavations, was made possible their dating. You are in this way recognized eight coastal cords more or less preserved than for the above, represent eight historical periods. The oldest, passing through Massenzatica, and then the westernmost is preetrusca age (about 3000 years ago) while the newer has an age later than 1600 a.d. very often these cords are no longer visible because of natural degradation (flood and subsidence) or due to anthropic phenomena (agricultural use or extraction of sand). In Massenzatica the dunes were especially up to 7 metres above sea level. The complex of coastal dunes that once ranged from Ravenna to Chioggia via Massenzatica, over the past century has almost completely disappeared as a result of excavation work carried out by humans to level the ground for agricultural purposes and for the extraction of sand. The site covers the important geomorphological region of Emilia Romagna has established the natural reserve "Dune fossils of Massenzatica", owned by the province of Ferrara, which covers an area of about 51 hectares. The tour leads along a path almost circular with many information boards on the fauna and especially the flora present.

  • In a very flat landscape of low fares stood out this curious formation of sand dunes, remnant of those that once sailed along the sea now several kilometres away. It is a precious ecosystem, home to rare plants and insects in the rest of the Po Valley: a place to be (very well managed by WWF which also organizes many praiseworthy initiatives) on the infinite sea of farmland surrounding it. To get to know.

  • Place to protect flora and fauna! Operated by the province with the WWF! Fascinating to visit to understand how it was once our land!
