The Tuscan Archipelago National Park joins the "Week of Planet Earth"

The geology of the Island of Elba is very rich, varied and lends itself well to becoming the stage for scientific festivals such as the "Week of Planet Earth", which will take place from 4 to 11 October 2020 throughout Italy. The event, in its eighth edition, has become the main appointment with Geosciences, collecting and promoting "Geoevents", which animate various locations throughout the country.

The Tuscan Archipelago National Park, recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve "Islands of Tuscany", contains a great geological and geomorphological diversity, and is therefore an open-air "teaching room" for Geosciences. This is why it joined by inserting two free dedicated events in the autumn program of the Walking Festival 2020: an excursion to the granite landscapes of the Stone Monsters in Marciana and an excursion to the Rio Marina mining park.

The week of Planet Earth is an event particularly close to the objectives of the UNESCO MAB Program in which the Tuscan Islands have been recognized as a Biosphere Reserve and of great interest because it intends to make young people passionate about Geosciences and wants to convey enthusiasm for research. and scientific discovery as tools to improve the quality of life by investing in the environment, energy, climate, nutrition, health, resources and reduction of natural risks.

The Program is divided into two days Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 October. On the first day it will be possible to visit the granite "monsters" of Marciana for free, through a trekking route on the western side of the island of Elba. We will start from the Pisan Fortress of Marciana and immerse ourselves in the splendid Mediterranean scrub that characterizes the place.

On the second day, we will visit the Rio Marina Mining Park. The Mining Park, created in 1991 with the aim of converting areas degraded by iron extraction and promoting the socio-economic development of local communities, preserves a geological, mineralogical and historical mining heritage of inestimable value.

To participate in both days, you must book by calling Info Park Arcipelago Toscano at 05-65908231 or send an e-mail toinfo@parcoarcipelago.info
