Our unique collections and expertise are being made available to promote a greater interest in the preservation of the natural heritage and to raise public awareness about the ever-increasing need to safeguard and sustainably use natural resources.

Did you know rhinoceroses were used to roam across the land currently called Piedmont?

Spring 1880: excavations for the railways line ongoing around Dusino San Michele, in the stretch from San Paolo Solbrito to Villafranca d'Asti, brought to light the almost complete and well-preserved fossil remains of a... rhinoceros!
Researchers from the Institute of Geology of Turin, who rushed to the site, found themselves dismayed in front of the majestic skeleton of a two-horned rhinoceros, that had been roaming across those lands, emerged from the warm waters of the Pliocene marine gulf of the Po Basin, three million years earlier.
