Field Camp 2006

In 2006 the Penn State Geosciences Field School was based at The Osservatorio Geologico di Coldigioco (OGC), an independent center for research and education in geology, art, and cuisine. Located in the tiny hilltop village of Coldigioco in the Apennine Mountains of central Italy, OGC consists of sleeping, eating, and living facilities, geological labs, art studios, kitchens, and a small fleet of vehicles.  Many of the buildings contain sections which were constructed 300-400 years ago.
