The Besano fossils

The Besano fossils

The town of Besano has a civic museum whose exhibits include pieces from this remarkable historical and environmental heritage, amongst which fossil fish, marine and terrestrial reptiles, plants and invertebrates, from the Mesozoic age and more specifically from the Middle Triassic period. In that epoch, these areas were part of a vast ocean called Tethys. The drying and disappearance of the ocean coincided with the formation of the Alpine chain.

One can live magnificently in this world if one knows how to work and how to love.
