A miniature Italy margin exists a smaller area devoted to Europe in miniature, in which there are twenty monuments representing thirteen European countries. The search for the most suitable material to build artifacts that could remain exposed to the elements without deterioration led to the resin foam, less perishable than wood and less plastic expressionless, which still constitutes the material of which the park miniatures are made. The first monument to see the light was the Basilica of Sant’Apollinare in Classe of Ravenna, in homage to his city of birth. Alongside the more than 250 miniatures and can visit a pavilion dedicated to the laws of physics, some for the little paths, try to drive small cars of the “interactive driving school”, attend live performances and fight to blows with a water cannon to ‘interior of a large playground. Finally, the other two most appealing attractions of the park: the scale model 1: 5 of the Grand Canal to go on capacious barges and splash ride Canoes, which while not presenting a boundary setting is sufficiently pleasant and above all “wet” .For all this, Italy in miniature is one of the strong points of the Riviera attractions which attract tourists for one day give up the sea to visit this wonder.
