The Park of the Appia Antica has been declared protected since 1988.
Thanks to decades of battles waged by citizens and environmentalists, this territorial system - unparalleled in the world in terms of its historical-archaeological and landscape value - was placed under a single integrated protection system.
A green wedge, the Park reaches to the city centre, and, being contiguous with the Alban Hills, it represents a biological corridor for numerous animal species; moreover, the Park has preserved parts of Roman countryside and coppices and groves.
In addition to these values, the Park contains historical and archaeological remains of great importance. The Park therefore serves the purpose of preserving a set of general values resulting from the complex and unique relationship between nature and man, between the cultural heritage and landscape.
