In Revello, in Piazza Denina 5, in the premises of the former Kindergarten, adjacent the famous Cappella Marchionale, Po Cuneese Park has opened the new Naturalistic Museum of the River Po.
The display includes three big dioramas where the natural features of the mountains, forests, and plain are represented: these are the three main environments in which you can divide the Park. For some particularly significant animals, like the Alpine Ibex and the Eagle, there are two open dioramas on rocky walls.
Next to the dioramas, nine cases are dedicated to specific themes: bird feathers, flight secrets, the various animal reproduction strategies, nests and dens, animal skeletons to understand the adaptation of the species to the environment they live in. Specific display cabinets deal with the Park reptiles, amphibians, and fish.
Some mini-dioramas reconstruct small environments, from lime soils to the plain cultivated field, to the undergrowth with mushrooms.
There are over 170 animals in the various collections and dioramas, chosen among the most significant ones living in the Park. The Museum is completed by a room for lessons, conferences, and meetings provided with modern audiovisual equipment. The Museum of Revello has a mainly educational value. The dioramas lead the visitors to specific environments, while the collections preserved in the cabinets give them the opportunity to discover more on specific issues. The visit to the Museum is recommended as a useful beginning for any educational project or as a first approach to visit any area of the Park.
