An exhibitions based on best fossil found inside the Bolca basin, became famous all over the world for the richness of its fossil content. In the Eocen, more than 45 million of years ago, the area of Bolca in the Lessini Mountain of Veneto was a tropical area with beautiful plants and beaches. The area of Bolca corresponded to a lagoon where the lack of oxigen permitted a perfect conservation of the death fishes then covered by fine sediment. An immense deposit of fossils was so created, more than 250 species of fish discovered in the last 250 years of excavations: the best is now shown at Natural History Museum in Venice.
