PIO BETTONI METEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATORY AND SEISMIC STATION

Sites of interest at Salò

Founded in 1877, the observatory was entrusted to Professor Pio Bettoni, who began collecting data on air temperature, atmospheric pressure, rainfall and weather conditions. The Geophysical Observatory was added in 1889 and became an important scientific research centre after the 1901 earthquake. The data collected over the past 120 years is interesting not only for Salò but for the entire Lake Garda area.
