The history of the estate
The area was born as a hunting preserve and agricultural holding including also some historic hunting properties, like Trafusa, Trafusina, Riserve Nuove and Capocotta.
From 1977 hunting is prohibited inside the estate. The Capocotta area, naturalistic and valuable oasis, was annexed in the 1985 to save it from speculation.
In 1999 the area was recognized as a State Natural Reserve and then as a Site of Community Interest assuming a protective regime following determined criteria for the safety of the protected areas.
