Further information

The Reserve stretches for about 7 km along the course of the Arno River, from the Romanesque bridge of Ponte Buriano to the power plant located downstream of the ENEL Penna dam, and includes the artificial reservoir of the dam and adjacent land areas.

The landscape is mainly characterized by the rolling hills surrounding the reservoir, consisting of fluvio-lacustrine sediments of different ages, with occasional presence of crags and vertical walls.From the Ponte a Buriano paper mill to Rondine, the Arno flows embedded among the rocks, while from Rondine to Penna the river widens to form the Penna reservoir.

The vegetation landscape consists of downy oak forests, located mainly on the slopes directly facing the reservoir, a sparse riparian tree belt, shrubs, agricultural crops (located mainly along the left bank of the Arno) and a large marsh area in the eastern section of the Reserve.
