If it's true that history is a blend of nature and culture, then this historic nature park, the scene of conflicts and clashes from the Unification of Italy to WWI, is a site to be preserved at all costs.
The Park is in the heart of Valle d’Ampola (Storo), between Valle del Chiese and Valle di Ledro, where Lake Ampola gleams like a great mirror. A recent redevelopment project has seen it open up to the public, with guided tours and unguided visits, workshops and walks, inside the Park — which is part of the UNESCO-designated Ledro Alps and Judicaria Biosphere Reserve — and inside the WWI and Unification Museum. You will cross a landscape dotted with ruins and relics that stand testament to the passage of time, heightening your awareness of the simultaneous absence and presence of those who went before you.
An evening visit enhances the aura of mystery.
