National Park of the Tuscan-Emilian encloses most of the natural elements that characterize the northern ridge appennico.
The history of this is written in its natural landscape has evolved from a highly simplified context of landscape and extremely functional agro-forestry model of the 60s and 70s, the Park is today a complex mosaic of environments which corresponds to a extraordinarily rich biodiversity: the stable environments of the forest, semi-natural open areas to further stages in the evolution and ecological succession, agro-ecosystems maintained by such human activities characterize residual significantly the landscape of the Park; great views from the tops of open grasslands of the summit, heaths, forests of beech and coniferous forests, deep valleys and fast-flowing rivers, tranquil mountain lakes and bogs valuable.
The renewed presence of natural habitat, the restored ecosystem complexity and the resulting abundance of species now present in its territory, which the park is named to manage and govern, are likely to be counted among the most important achievements in terms of nature conservation and recovery observed in biodiversity in our country.
Among the fauna stand out as the golden eagle and the wolf, stable for years in the wildest corners, large mammals such as deer, wild boar and roe deer, and many birds and amphibians of alpine type. The incredible variety of flora and endemic species of the Park includes glacial relicts; for the wealth of some species surveys are considered genuine natural botanic gardens.
