The Museum in Borgoricco, designed by architect Aldo Rossi, exhibits material found in the Centuriation area in the North-East of Padua, mainly dating back to Roman times.
Functional and modern, the museum exhibits the collection of the Roman Centuriation history coming from the area between Villa del Conte and Camposampiero, the river Muson Vecchio, the municipality of Mirano and the river Brenta. The collection has been enriched with numerous new objects thanks to recent archaeological excavations in the area of Borgoricco, in collaboration with the Soprintendenza dei Beni Archeologici of the Veneto Region; the archaeological activity was supported with both public and private funds (residents, municipality of Borgoricco and Veneto Region).
The exhibited objects are impressive for their quality and uniqueness, such as jewellery, coins, farming equipment and much more. Each room in the museum narrates the main aspects of Roman life, from the shape of the Roman grid to all the typical activities of that time, such as agriculture, farming and commerce.
The museum curates activities for students, labs and guided tours,
