This park encompasses large sections of the northern Apennines between Emilia and the very northern part of Toscana. My father's family comes from the highest peaks in the western Emilian section just south of Parma. It's the area that separates continental from Mediterranean Italy in this region.

Apparently, it's also a Unesco "Man and Bio-Sphere" Reserve, which I didn't even know.
