Municipality of Cervia


In a shady corner, at the end of the urban park of the town of Tagliata, a small romantic corner opens up with notes of pastel color, which brighten the fronds of the great plane trees.

A wrought iron gate acts as a support for fragrant evergreen vines and opens onto some recovered historical vases, from which emerge large agave mixed with sedum.

A bed of giant dark-leaved begonias and pink flower illuminates the whole area giving a touch of romance.


The garden of Cervia is dedicated to the salinara tradition and to the salt origins of the city is also dedicated MUSA, il Museo del Sale which tells the history and development of the salt and the town, which from the city of salt has been transformed in a tourist resort, today known and appreciated throughout Europe. In 2013 the museum was enriched with a new section that also offers a small but interesting archaeological area. Here you can see artifacts found on the territory such as the remains of an early medieval ship and 6th century mosaics of the church of San Martino prope litus maris.

To welcome visitors to both the museum and the Saline Camillone, the museum’s outdoor section and the last original saliferous fund, are the volunteers of the cultural group “Civiltà salinara”, which still produce salt using the ancient artisan method of daily collection. Cervia salt has always been known as the “sweet salt”, due to the limited presence of bitter salts, which due to the particular climate and type of processing here do not deposit on the sodium chloride crystals. The entire setting of the flowerbed is immersed in a cloud of ornamental grasses, interspersed with annual blooms that recall the colors of the salt flats and typical halophyte plant formations, represented primarily by salicornia, statice and inula.
