We devise and experimentally realize a procedure capable of detecting and distinguishing quantum discord and classical correlations as well the presence of factorized states in a joint system-environment setting. Our scheme builds on recent theoretical results showing how the distinguishability between two reduced states of a quantum system in a bipartite setting can convey important information about the correlations present in the bipartite state and the interaction between the subsystems. The two addressed subsystems are the polarization and spatial degrees of freedom of the signal beam generated by parametric down-conversion, which are suitably prepared by the idler beam. Different global and local operations allow for the detection of different correlations by studying via state tomography the trace distance behavior between suitable polarization subsystem states.
