The Story to live Together

The mayor of Sauris wants to expand the Ethnographic Museum with photos and fossils of the famous Carnic Lagoon formed 250 million years ago, a geological peculiarity that characterizes the valley of Sauris in a truly unique way.
Renzo, an architect also an expert in geology, has been commissioned to coordinate the team of explorers who will have to complete the mission.

Do you want to try your hand at this adventure? Renzo is waiting for you at the Ethnographic Museum and will also provide you with the knowledge and equipment necessary for research.

Renzo, Experiential Travel Operator

Hello, I’m Renzo, engineer-architect of Pordenone, expert in geology with a great passion for Sauris, where I live in a beautiful historic house. I can’t wait to introduce you to the geological evolution of the “Sauris Lagoon”, an incredible and unique story that began about 250 million years ago when these lands were in another part of the planet.



What we can do together
