The "Vasche di Tivoli-Manzolino" is a natural oasis situated in the countryside of San Giovanni in Persiceto and in Castelfranco, in the adjacent province of Modena. The area is one of the most important wet zones in central Emilia.
The abandoned mill of Formagliaro with its long portico is a reference point.
In the three lakes that make up the basin, there is rich marsh vegetation with reed-beds providing a safe refuge for nesting by many animal species.
The fauna is composed of amphibians, reptiles (marsh tortoises, water snakes), mammals (foxes and coypu) and, above all, marsh birds such as herons, marsh falcons, grebes, coots and cormorants.
On the edge of the area, there are two free observation points: the panoramic viewpoint, accessible to everyone, on the west side, and the tower, on the east side.
