Nirano mud volcanoes 3D Model
Established as the first natural reserve in Emilia-Romagna, in the province of Modena, the so-called “Salse di Nirano” is home to a geologic landscape unlike any other in Italy. Tucked between rolling hills a few hundred meters above sea level, the area is known for its eruptive “salse” or mud volcanoes.
Born from the area’s clay subsoil, cones up to a three meters in height form thanks to a continuous supply of mud replenished by local rainfall and runoff, paired with methane gas forcefully expelled from below the ground by the Earth’s geologic forces. The feature and area’s name of “salse” refers to the presence (albeit minute) of salt in the materials ejected from the volcanoes themselves.
