National Archaeological Museum of Altino
This unique site, one of the most important sites of the Roman Cisalpine area, is a historical and archaeological instance of international significance, which now finally has a location that can accommodate finds from centuries of collecting and scientific research. The new seat of the Altino National Archaeological Museum was inaugurated in December 2014 and its set-up is currently being completed. The complex, built on a state property area in the borough “La Fornace”, consists of two renovated rural buildings and three newly constructed buildings. By extension, number and quality of services offered, it is the first archaeological museum in the region of Veneto, a real cultural centre supporting the vast research project aimed at exhibiting and enhancing one of the best preserved Roman cities in Italy. The project was developed by the Regional Directorate for Cultural and Landscape Heritage of Veneto and is designed to ensure the continuity of the museum narrative, to provide a clear differentiation of itineraries (visitors, museum staff, additional service providers), to further the visibility of the archaeological findings, and make it possible to organise collateral activities (exhibitions, theatre performances, concerts, installations). Visitors will have a chance to become acquainted with the process that leads from the discovery to the exhibition of the archaeological evidence of the past, and will get to know the technical and administrative steps that make these finds into cultural items to be enjoyed by the public as an integral part of a highly important scientific and informative process. The previous location, which hosted the museum for more than fifty years, has been refurbished and reclassified as an additional exhibition space for archaeological areas.
