The Carlo Siemoni Forestry Museum

Discover the flora and fauna of the Apennine mountains

Poppi
The Carlo Siemoni Forestry Museum was opened in 1985, before being moved to the Corpo Forestale in Badia Prataglia in 1992. The museum is dedicated to Karl Siemon who was asked to manage the Casentino forest by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Leopoldo II, from 1837. The museum is home to photos, displays of the flora and fauna of the Apennines, a model showing the geographical layout of the region and stuffed Apennine mammals. There is also the Carlo Siemoni woods which were planted by Siemoni as an experiment in growing exotic trees alongside local species.
