Company profile

Parco Lombardo della Valle del Ticino - the first regional park in Italy - was established in 1974. The consortium that manages the park, which includes 47 municipalities and 3 provinces, manages a territory of more than 91 thousand hectares, applying a system of differentiated protection to natural, agricultural and urban areas. The aim is to reconcile the requirements of environmental protection with social and economic issues of the many communities present in that field, one of the most densely populated areas in Italy. In recent years, thanks to Life projects, the park triggers the protection of fish both with the support of endangered species and with a battle against non-native species.
