- Il Parco Mattia Giurelli is a public park in Porchiano, immersed in the holm-oak wood below the ancient church of Santa Cristina (St. Christina). It takes its name from the founder, Mattia Giurelli, who decided – with the savings arising from his business as an entrepreneur in the USA – to buy a large portion of the forest. Afterwards, he donated the area to the municipality of Amelia, with the special clause that it would remain dedicated to the social life of the historic village of Porchiano.
The park hosted “The Dinosaur Exhibition”, a project developed by Wonderworld Entertainment in cooperation with Noi Amici Per Leo Association.
- La Scarzuola is a private house which is possible to visit upon reservation. The Scarzuola is like a medicine: it can also have serious side effects…
