  • Place incredibly almost unknown. It is not easy to find it open and today we were lucky. See clay background a carpet of ancient bones of elephants, oxen, deer, rinnoceronti and many other animals of so long ago makes you think about how man has modified the environment destroying Wonderland created by the evolution of nature. But beyond the environmental aspect is a very interesting place, book and go for it.

  • Not to be missed for an essay of lazio. This is an old river shore where settled the bones of elephants, oxen, etc. transformed into a museum on site. The tour is led by a paleontologist and excavations are still in progress. The path is uneven as country road anyway also has its charms. Better to come from via di boccea. Last advice for booking. .. If you can form a group large enough to assess whether to direct the visiting children or adults

  • Rome is known throughout the world for its famous legacy left by the Romans "the ancients": the beautiful monuments that we all know. But the vast majority of people does not know an inheritance that comes from a past much more "ancient", something like 300,000 years ago! In two Roman suburbs came to light and into museums, two fossil deposits of the Pleistocene with remains especially of elephants like "antique", but also smaller animals as primitive ox or deer. But also human bones!. I have had the opportunity to visit both sites that are in opposite positions in relation to the Centre of Rome. The largest which is well worth a visit is the Polledrara of Cecanibbio, very difficult place to reach, impossible with public transport. Is close to via Boccea past the GRA, following an inner road in poor condition. In a huge shed is preserved a piece of ancient river course dried up, where they stopped to give numerous animals to various vicissitudes then have finished their days dying on the spot. Past centuries did the rest by keeping a large amount of bones of these animals. It's amazing how many are present on site: of course the "pieces" that remain etched in the mind are those related to large elephants with long fangs. The visit is supported by an excellent explanation of a palaeontologist. It's really worth getting here and "discover" this Rome of 300 thousand years ago! Much smaller is the other site located near Rebibbia in Casal de ' Pazzi, easily accessible by Metro and bus. The site is much smaller and perhaps less interesting, with a small amount of exhibits but here was found a fragment of human crancio (a copy is in the small museum). Even here there was a river where animals were drinking. From the top of a walkway you have an overview of the site, which is also stored in a shed. Then the room is changing course untrimmed; and the place seems to perk up with the water return (virtual) and presentation with video of the place in ancient times. In the small Museum showcases various fossils including large molars ancient elephants. Outside, the reconstruction of a Pleistocene garden with essences that could be found here at that time, including the zelkova, a tree that today there is more to these latitudes. If I were to recommend one of the two sites, would definitely for Polledrara although as mentioned is more difficult to achieve and is open to the public with discontinuity.
