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.
