The Park has been included in the list during the session of the World Heritage
Committee held on December 2nd, 1999 in Marrakech, Morocco; the new site has been
called "Ferrara, City of the Renaissance, and its Po Delta", since it is an extension of the
Este town site already present in the List since 1995.
In its justification for the inclusion, the Committee praises the extraordinary natural
ecosystem which was closely linked by man to the town between the 14th and the 16th
century.
Main human activities in the Park:
Agriculture (22.000 ha)
Aquaculture (19.000 ha)
Hunting
Tourism (650.000-700.000pax/year)
Master Plan
The Master Plan of the Coast of the Regional Po Delta Park
is a document elaborated by the Park with the contributions of the
Provinces of Ferrara and Ravenna, of the Emilia–Romagna
Regional Authority and the European Union.
It is a tool for the local management of a protected area,
and is driven by innovation and research.
What is included in MP cannot be imposed like a law, but on the
other hand is available to every Institution in order to realize a
pratical approach to sustainable development.
The missions of the project are: knowledge, regulation and
strategy.
