This itinerary aims at introducing visitors to one of the oldest and most important professions of Chioggia: salters and “salt production”. Salt was a key economic resource already in the Roman Empire. The 12th century was the most important period for salt production from the point of view of trade; in Chioggia and in the whole South Lagoon, salt was referred to as “white gold” due to its economic value.
In the magical atmosphere of the room dedicated to the movement in the water, the children become the protagonists of a fantastic story to discover the underwater world. In the hall of the aquarium they will be able to see and learn some historical figures: fish, shellfish and other animals. Each child contributes to the construction of an aquarium to bring to class.
The marine environments and the organisms that people them are the red thread of an itinerary that unwinds between the museum halls dedicated to the sea. The giant skeleton of the whale is an occasion to discover the open sea; in the hall of water movement students are “immersed” in the abyss of the sea, while in the tegnue aquarium, they can discover underwater rocky environments and observe some organisms live.
