Comitato per il Parco "ANTONIO CEDERNA"
"Tutta l'Italia va trattata come un parco e alla rigorosa salvaguardia dei valori del suo territorio va rigorosamente subordinata ogni ipotesi di trasformazione e sviluppo: perchè non venga definitivamente distrutta l'identità culturale l'integrità fisica del nostro Paese" Antonio Cederna
The Comitato per il Parco was founded in November 1994 and is a non-profit and politically non-partisan organization created to protect and preserve the vestiges of the original Parco di Monza complex which includes Parco, Villa Reale and its Gardens. The Comitato views this complex as an international source of asset to be held in safekeeping for future generations and the primary goal is to preserve the features of this natural and historic treasure .
