A Moon-like Hilly Environment

Salse di Nirano originate from hydrocarbon deposits and salt water getting in touch with the surface of the soil. As the salt water rises, it melts or dissolves the clay and, after reaching the surface, it forms the characteristic small mud cones through the sedimentation of the mud around the mouth. The presence of a plant characteristic of marine coast like Puccinellia Borreri around the small mud cones, is an evidence of the existence of salt environment vegetation.
