Comune di Chioggia


The site includes a series of consolidated dunes that represent the most ancient dune system of the littoral between Chioggia and the Po and, as such, presents interesting naturalistic peculiarities and exceptional testimonial importance. In fact, it is one of the residual examples of climatic littoral forest, together with the Bosco di Valgrande di Bibione, the relict woods of the Cavallino Biophenological Station, and, outside the region, the Boscone della Mesola.

The choice of this site, which differs from the other project sites due to some specific features, is linked to

the presence of the habitat 2250*, which in the Veneto Region shows appreciable cartographic areas only in this site (about 23% of the regional surface) and in the sites of the north-eastern coastal sector, included in the present project (Cavallino Peninsula and Caorle Lagoon – Mouth of the Tagliamento River). The inclusion of the Bosco Nordio site therefore allows recovery and improvement actions to be carried out on all the 2250* areas currently surveyed in the Region, which cover little more than 1 ha in total. Similarly, although the surface areas expressed in this site by the 2130* habitat are not very large, their requalification would make Bosco Nordio a source site for other

Natura 2000 sites located nearby and strongly isolated from the coastal sector by a predominantly rural landscape context.

  • Redevelopment and extension of two priority habitats of the edaphorophilous series (2130* and 2250*) with a total area of approximately 24,000 m2
  • .

  • Installation of fences (approx. 150 ml) to limit anthropogenic disturbance in the redeveloped areas
  • Positioning of descriptive panels of the environment
