Noble flatland springs

Halfway between Reggio Emilia and Parma, this small, 37-hectare reserve in the municipality of Campegine protects one of the region’s last examples of flatland springs (locally known as “fontanassi”), where small hydrophilic woods grow and large pools of clear water flow across the fields by an elegant, turreted rural building, a very short distance from the A1 motorway. The name of the place, which used to belong to Reggio Emilia aristocracy, comes from Count Re; the famous agronomist Filippo Re, dean of the University of Bologna at the beginning of the 19th century, belonged to this family.
