Vanzago Woods - WWF Oasis
An area covered by the municipalities of Vanzago, Pogliano Milanese and Arluno. Over 143 hectares owned and managed by the WWF Italy. The environment of the natural reserve is one typical of the lowlands, known as the “pianalto asciutto”. The woods are the remnant of the great hunting forests of the Viscontis and the Sforzas. There is a significant presence of expanses of water of varying depths. The countryside along the outer strip has an abundance of stable pastureland, hedges, planted rows, and areas with trees. The environment is in a large measure the result of a work of environmental reclassification done over the years by Ulisse Cantoni, the original owner of the estate, who wanted to give it as an endowment to the environmental association, so that its conservation would continue through time.
