Where Piazza A. Lupi, 52, Allerona (Terni)
Museum of Geological Cycles Instituted in 2003, inside the Municipal building, the Museo dei Cicli Geologici documents the geological history of the southwestern area of Umbria. In this Museum, marine-fauna fossils from the Pleistocene—such as remains of whales, shark teeth, shellfish, urchin and corals—and other geological and botanical finds coming from the Allerona area are preserved. The Museum also promotes scientific research, environmental educational programs and thematic excursions in the territory, in collaboration with the Laboratorio Ambiente Distrettuale of the School of Allerona.
