A Stream Set between Walls rich in Fossils

Stirone River Regional Park includes a 14 km stretch of torrent Stirone, crossing the territory of four Municipalities: Fidenza and Salsomaggiore Terme, in the Province of Parma, Vernasca and Alseno, in the Province of Piacenza. The protected area, established in 1988 thanks to several associations and the local authorities, has a great paleontological value also depending on the erosive action of the stream which, after the intense gravel excavations of the 1950s and 60s, has brought to the light fossil strata of great scientific importance. The Park is also important for its flora, vegetation, and wildlife, that have been thoroughly studied in recent years: Sirone Park safeguards habitats, animal and vegetable species of Community interest and is part of the SCI (Site of Community Importance) "Torrente Stirone", within Natura 2000 Network.
