Walking on an ancient sea bottom among the fossil traces of invertebrates and molluscs, a unique experience that takes us back to the sea of millions of years ago. Tha Park is the ideal place for schools and teachers who are willing to discover not only geology and palaeontology, but also the flora and fauna present today.
But the Park offers much more: it is the laboratory where you could assess the effects of climate change and where you could understand that soil is life and must be treated with respect, that some near natural landscapes need our care and that history and culture have shaped (not without contradictions) a unique landscape!

PCTO (School-Work Alternation) Projects for Secondary Schools
Between December 2022 and May 2023, class 1°G of the Liceo Classico e Linguistico Romagnosi in Parma was involved in the PCTO (School-Work Alternation) project, thanks to their motivated teacher Katia Carbonara. The aim of the project was to study, reorganise and promote the fossil and mineral finds housed in the school museum. This led to the creation of ROMUS, an exhibition space created by the students in collaboration with experts from the Ducato Parks.
