The Park territory is the result of centuries of history shaped by the wonderful but also difficult mountains of Appennino Tosco-Emiliano.
The first prehistoric nomadic people, as well as the Resistance movement and any other important historical event have left their signs on the territory and the landscape, signs that are there to remember who and what they come from, integrated in a natural context of great value they contribute to further enrich.
Traces dating back to the Roman period, the ruins of Matilda's fortresses or the rich palaces of the medieval lords. The trails of the merchants and their mules, and the trails that have enabled the Partisans to move across the forests without being seen. The hope given and then stolen by Napoleon and the patriotic passion of the heroes of the Risorgimento.
