The Butterfly House protects biodiversity
This year the large renovated butterfly is in a white color, to recall the theme ‘Climate, Peace, Future’: white like hope for the future, trust in people and the world. White is the emblem of purity, peace and reconciliation, and expresses hope and the desire for change.
The choice of plants is aimed at making visitors, citizens and tourists alike, aware of the issue of climate change and to carry out a sustainable intervention, identifying perennial species with low water demand, capable of attracting beneficial insects such as bees, bumblebees and butterflies.
This flowerbed is a symbol of one of Cervia’s main attractions, the Milano Marittima Butterfly House. Established 21 years ago at the behest of the Cervia Municipal Administration, the Province of Ravenna and the Department of Tourism of the Emilia-Romagna Region, it is now a real centre for the conservation of biodiversity, with an in-depth focus on the world of insects. The historical heart of the centre is an air-conditioned greenhouse of over 500 m2 made unique by hundreds of tropical butterflies flying all around.
