Bismantova Stone is one of the geological jewel of Italian Appennino Tosco-Emiliano Park. Depending on the side, it shows different aspects of its nature. From Casale slope, the imposing walls made up of distinctive sandstones called biocalcarenites, can be observed. Sticking profiles with thin ledges, dihedrons, recesses and squat towers, all are indicating the trends of stratification and fractures. During the night of “Italian Republic Day”, as planet Earth inexorably rotates on its own axis, the first female Italian astronaut flies over the majestic Bismantova Stone, aboard of International Space Station. A wonderful “Strawberry Moon” – the last full Moon of springtime – illuminates and paints the enchanted nightscape with a pink-white light: simply pure poetry!
