Dear friends,

I share this petition for saving Pietro Pellegrini's Botanical Garden. It's the only place dedicated to the protection, conservation and preservation of the exceptional Apuan Alps floristic richness, including the beautiful endemic species Pinguicula apuana and Pinguicula mariae (named by Casper, who described it, in honor of the botanist and garden’s curator Maria Ansaldi).
We need your help for promote and protect this reality, now increasingly threatened by bureaucratic problems and the advance of the marble quarries who are devastating life and flora of these unique mountains, baptized “Garden of Europe”.

You can sign at this link:

Thank you for your support!
