The PROGEO-Piemonte project offers an innovative approach for the management and enhancement of the geological heritage of the Piemonte Region.
Nine “geothematic areas “ have been identified for representing the geodiversity of the Piemonte Region, whose integrated analysis allowed further knowledge to be acquired on the geological history, climate change, natural hazards, land use and georesources of this territory.
This knowledge, has been disseminated through the identification of geological sites, the enhancement of museum collections, the activation of educational projects with the schools, exhibitions and nature trails designed to promote the geotourism in the Piemonte Region.
