Today the Bosco is the biggest park in the town and is managed by the Associazione Anticittà
In 1930, to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of Virgil, a park dedicated to the renowned Latin poet was instituted with the intent of featuring every plant, tree and flower mentioned in his works.
The construction of the Bosco Virgiliano was overseen by Giuseppe Roda, who picked the location for the park in the south-east side of the town. It is accessed through a long, poplar-lined boulevard culminating in a round piazza with a bust of Virgil, the starting point for many different pathways.
Today the Bosco is the biggest park in the town and is managed by the Associazione Anticittà, an association dedicated to the preservation of green urban spaces, which also manages the park’s annexed structures.
The old conservatories are now home to various butterfly colonies, whereas cultural and entertainment activities and events take place in the park’s green spaces.
