A laboratory to disclose the secret of the travertine
February 25, 2009

  • On the wake of the great success of the speleological excursions in Marmore caves, there is a development of an issue: why don’t give a scientific nature to a sporting and play-services? Here is a project of a speleological and geological laboratory in the Upper Outlook of Marmore. From Easter 2009, by the Upper Outlook ticket office there will be a mineralogy laboratory. A professional worker will be available to do samplings of rocks, prepare experiments with chemical reactive, see videos on the formation of caves in the area of Marmore. We remind – to be more than 300 and arouse the interest of speleologist from all over the world. Four didactic panels explain the hypogeous system of the Waterfall for people who doesn’t take part to the laboratory but want to go and see the room inside the ticket office. The idea is interesting for almost two aspects. The first: it is preparatory activities to the descend in the cave and in this enjoy the spectacle to see the travertine (think about the importance of the visiting for school groups). In the second: the opportunity for people who can’t descend in the cave for problems of time and for physical problems). It is necessary the advanced booking for using the laboratory with the supervision of a geologist. Information: Upper Outlook ticket office tel. +39.0744.62982
