Other areas - Lombardy - Torrente Curone

Curone stream flows through the territory of the province of Lecco. It crosses areas of high natural value and it is included, for most of its course, within the regional park  Parco Regionale di Montevecchia e della Valle del Curone. Within INHABIT project, considered the limited availability of sites showing highly natural features within HER6, Curone stream has been selected as reference site for this hydroecoregion outside Piedmont.

Il torrente Curone scorre nel territorio della provincia di Lecco. Il suo tracciato, che attraversa ambienti di elevato valore naturalistico, è in gran parte ricompreso all’interno del Parco Regionale di Montevecchia e della Valle del Curone. All’interno del progetto INHABIT il torrente Curone è stato selezionato come sito di riferimento, esterno alla regione Piemonte, per la HER 6 in conseguenza della limitata disponibilità di siti ad elevata naturalità all’interno in questa Idroecoregione.
