Not all, the ancient vocation Salinara of this is documented since Etruscan. The production and the trade of salt, which was once the only means of storing food, especially meat and fish, made it a hub of great strategic importance and a thriving economy. Inside the park it is still jealously preserved Salina Camillone, last of 144 Salinette for salt production active until 1959, when it passed from the artisan to industrial. Today the salt Camillone is the heart of Musa (Salt Museum) and continues, for demonstration purposes, to produce sweet salt, ie without bitter salts, high quality, through the same process handed down from generation to generation from ancient times (” Cervia method “).
