TRIPONZO

Int.Geo.Mod srl.,leader of geologic services, from education to territorial valorization, organizes lessons, venue and trekking in order to promote the geoturistic heritage of the Valnerina area. The IGM staff is at disposal to guide italian and foreigner tourist along the main route of geological and naturalistic interest around Umbria and Italy as a whole.

Currently, IGM is involved in two projects:

- “Valnerina geologic park and Geologic Study Centre” in cooperation and sponsored by BIM of Cascia and Umbria Region.

The Geopatrimony of the Park is represented both by geologic/geomorphologic and cultural/architectonics sites strictly linked with Apennine geology and geography (hermitages, abbeys, neviere – snow cellar): 18 geosites located along 10 thematic routes that tel

l us and allow the comprehension of the geologic phenomena of this land, whose evolution history, started 200 million years ago, gives back us a suggestive naturalistic landscape and a unique occasion of enjoying the nature and elevate our personal culture.

At almost 1000 mt height in the middle of Valnerina and a few km from the Geologic Park of Sibillini Mountains, the CSG is located inside the CEA structure “Il Sentiero” of Poggiodomo, and is entirely surrounded by the green hills of the Comunitary Interest Site of Coscerno-Aspra. It’s the ideal starting point for trekking and excursions from a biological, environmental and geological point of view, because of its strategic position in the middle of a dense routes network.

CEA/CSG offer: didactic-scientific naturalistic laboratory; geological survey study camp; touristic trekking for small and big groups; training courses on geoscience and environmental concern; cultural, environmental and wide and food heritages promotional venues; environmental volunteering experience; hospitality for tourists, day-trippers, backpackers who want to relax and enjoy nature.
