The Comacchio’s Saline and the Lagoon

The Salina di Comacchio is the place where of the pink flamingos nest, therefore is it especially suitable for birdwatchers.
The Saline stretch for 600 acres and are divided into dense interweaving of canals, ponds, and with closed systems divert water and some abandoned huts along the perimeter.
The salt extraction was interrupted in 1984, as it was considered no more a lucrative business. Due to the absence of human activities and therefore disturbing, many species of birds elected it as ideal site for nesting since 2000 and also one of the most important Italian colonies of Pink Flamingo settled there permanently.
In August, in a small salt pan obtained for tourist-educational purposes, you can see the formation of the salt crystal.
Today, in the Salina di Comacchio, the work on the "LIFE Project", funded by the European Union in 2001, are in an advanced stage: these works aim to restore the hydraulic functionality; to demolish more than three kilometres of the old power line and the burial of the new one; to restorethe artisan production sector covering a portion of 4 hectares with works of natural engineering.
