Museo Giardino geologico "Sandra Forni"

Where Viale della Fiera, Bologna

The Museum Geological Garden "Sandra Ovens" is a project of the Geological, Seismic and Soil Survey 

(SGSS) of the Emilia-Romagna designed to offer a meeting place for the local culture. 

The project is divided into two spaces, the museum and the garden, and aims to discover the extraordinary beauty of the countryside of Emilia-Romagna and the richness of his geodiversity. 

The internal display shows, among others, some splendid specimens of gypsum and sulfur of Sicily, a collection of plaster casts of Emilia-Romagna, the ammonites of Morocco, and rare quartz blacks donated or acquired from collectors and from mines in large part now closed. In outer space, the garden Geological offers a walk in the deep time of geology. The path winds through 14 stations where the rocks are entrusted with the task of describing a significant part of the geological history of our region, from about 250 million years ago, led to the formation of the Apennines, the Po Valley and the Adriatic coast.
