The Micromondo Thematic Park on Geology is the first park dedicated to the theme of earth sciences born in Basilicata.
The Micromondo was born from the idea of two Lucanian geologists with the aim of guaranteeing to a user as wide and varied as possible, the approach and understanding of the world of karst phenomena , through a didactic container unique in its kind, structured to make it usable not only to experts in the field, but also to schoolchildren of every order and grade or to the merely curious and passionate.
The Theme Park Micromondo on Geology is a fun and original way to learn scientific geological knowledge thanks to 3D miniatures representing the most important issues concerning the genesis and evolution of the Earth (orogenesis, volcanism, karstism, earthquakes and whatever characterizes the terrestrial landscape, many of which have movement, in order to achieve greater realism.
The structure is located on the shores of Lake Sirino (Municipality of Nemoli) on the slopes of the homonymous mountain and also offers parallel activities such as trekking which, upon reservation, can also include small experiments on the territory , or services such as geological consulting.
Discover the world with us, come to The Micromondo Thematic Park on Geology.
The Theme Park Micromondo on Geology Trekking comes from the idea of two Lucan geologists and aims to provide a fun way to approach the earth sciences. Our trekking activities take place inside the Appenino Lucano National Park . They include multiple aspects: geology; flora and fauna.
The routes are very varied because they include a multitude of morphological and natural elements all enclosed in a range of a few kilometers: for example glacial lakes, karst lakes, lakes for landslide; rivers; sumptuous peaks; fossiliferous environments; gorges and even the sea, since there is a few km from the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The routes are also suitable for everyone: from school groups, to families, but they are very attractive even for the merely curious and for people who are approaching hiking activities for the first time.
The excursions , on request, may also include experiments in the field and are carried out by highly experienced graduate personnel accredited as environmental hiking guide strong > from the Basilicata Region.

The Micromondo is the first theme park with a geological theme born in Basilicata .
The idea comes from two Lucan geologists who propose to find a way to give greater impetus to the dissemination of the Earth Sciences and develop a more conscious perception of the landscape and the dynamics that generated it.
The Microworld is a unique structure of its kind, designed to guarantee easy use by a user varied and designed to be a fun and original way to spread knowledge and culture. The path is characterized by three-dimensional models , made entirely by artisan-Lucanian artists, and representing the main geological processes that constitute the genesis and evolution of the planet Earth: orogenesis, volcanism, karstism, earthquakes, glaciations and energy sources.
Most of these models have their own movement, in order to allow the visitor a realistic and dynamic perception of the processes represented.
The thematic areas are associated with " special effects" which, in addition to to represent a useful way to provide the visitor with greater realism in the simulation of every geological process, contributing to giving greater suggestion to the representation, up to transmitting the thrill induced by an earthquake or the charm expressed by a volcanic eruption. / p>
The route also contains a mineral collection , fossils and rock samples .
