The Villa Ghigi Park it is a patrimony that the Foundation, which has been entrusted with the management of the green area since September 2004, is committed to caring for and developing for enriching it and making the park into a huge natural laboratory for the city’s schools. Beyond education and spreading environmental awareness, the Foundation is specialized in the planning of public green areas and projects for new public parks and gardens, itineraries, books and leaflets.
