The Casa del Fiume represents a new garden in the city of Cuneo, but above all an educational center serving the territory. Located in a strategic position, halfway between the city center and the Gesso torrent, it is easily accessible from Piazza Galimberti thanks to the panoramic lift that connects the plateau to the river area.
Close to the municipal sports facilities, it is also the gateway to some of the most popular river park trails.

The Casa del Fiume is composed of:
a conference room (max 80 people capacity)
two didactic classrooms
a scientific laboratory
an educational apiary with a multimedia system for observing bees
Inside there are two exposures:

  • foto macro by Gennaro Manna
  • Il mondo delle api (Stelvio National Park)

There are also two garden activities available for the public:

  • Scopritana! In search of dens and nests to discover the inhabitants of the garden. (Game card)
  • Normodistratto? An interactive path to encourage observation of the landscape. (Game card)
