An analysis of the composition of the conglomeratic clasts has indicated thirty points of origin of the sedimentary material in the area. The landslide therefore covered over 100 kilometres along the sea floor before depositing its load. Megabeds are often events of considerable stratigraphic significance (marker levels), being “instantaneous” from the depositional point of view as well as being recognizeable over large areas.
The Park Visitor Centre is located in Cascina Butto at Montevecchia. This space, in addition to housing the offices of the park, is home to an interactive exhibition on geology, nature and cultural aspects which characterize the area and is designed for the dissemination of content for both students and families. Cascina Butto is located along the road which goes up the Collina di Montevecchia and is appropriately indicated by road signs.
