A prestigious acknowledgment to Abruzzo and Italy keeps and consolidates its primacy of Unesco protected areas, collecting 53 wells. Abruzzo reaches the historic milestone of the first human heritage site. 937 hectares of the National Parks of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise have been placed on the transnational site Unesco “Faggete vetuste dei Carpazi and other regions of Europe”
Abruzzes beech woods are distinguished from other European forests for tree height (up to 50 meters) and their age (even 600 years). Another uniqueness at the continental level is the high level of biodiversity due to the low degree of human intervention.
