Archeo-Nature Park Opens in Trentino on UNESCO Anniversary for World Heritage

FIAVÉ, TRENTINO; JUNE 14 – The Fiavé municipality, situated in the Italian province of Trento, is opening a new archeological park. This nature reserve has a rich history dating back to the Bronze Age, and has been awarded three UNESCO recognitions for its natural and historic contributions. 

Open to the public this June, the Archaeo-Nature Park of Fiavè gives visitors the possibility of a journey into prehistory through the exploration of archeology and nature. In an effort to help visitors better understand the daily life of the inhabitants, one may enjoy various installations and information panels within the park. The prehistoric pile-dwelling has been reconstructed to show five large huts from a village of the 2nd millennium BC. In ancient times, living in a village such as this had several advantages; one could adapt to changes in water levels more easily, water and food sources were plentiful and always nearby, and the water gave greater opportunities to defend oneself against enemies and wild animals. 

The opening coincides with the tenth anniversary of the inclusion of 111 pile-dwelling archaeological sites around the Alps of Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, Slovenia, and Italy in the UNESCO World Heritage list that follows: prehistoric settlements dating back to between 5000 and 500 BC which are found underwater, on the banks of a lake, along rivers or in humid areas, and which, thanks to their exceptional conservation conditions, represent an extraordinary testimony of the first agricultural societies in Europe. Nineteen of the 111 sites are located in Italy, in particular around Lake Garda and Lake Varese, and within five distinct regions: Lombardy, Veneto, Piedmont, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and Trentino-South Tyrol. 

The Archaeo-Nature Park will be open every day from 10 AM to 6 PM from June 27th until September 10th. The entrance ticket costs 7 euros. Admission is free for children under 14 years old as well as for visitors on a school trip. The rates for educational workshops (5 euros) and guided tours (3 euros) have also been established.

The new park facilities are particularly suited for families and children. During the summer, the Educational Services of the Archaeological Heritage Office offers a full range of activities, including educational workshops, theater performances, group readings, and participatory visits with reduced costs for larger families. There are also reduced costs for groups of at least 15 people for lab activities and guided tours. (@BrittanyBryantF)
