Once upon a time there was the oldest reptile in Italy

Tridentinosaurus antiquus is considered to be one of the oldest fossilised reptiles in Italy. Despite its palaeontological importance, its history is still largely unknown. Thanks to the use of cutting-edge technologies, a new study published in February 2024 has revealed the incredible truth about the preservation of this enigmatic reptile.
Valentina Rossi will talk about this on Tuesday, 23 April at 6 pm at the South Tyrol Museum of Nature in her lecture in Italian entitled "C'era una volta il rettile più antico d'Italia". Valentina Rossi is a palaeontologist specialising in the study of exceptionally well-preserved animal and plant fossils.

Online booking is required on the museum's website. Admission is free. The event is organised in collaboration with the Geological Chamber of Trentino-Alto Adige and is worth two training points for participants in attendance.
