Museo Archeologico di Quarto d'Altino

The new museum, recently inaugurated within a typical renovated rural complex, is located in the vast archaeological area where the pre-Roman settlement and then the Roman city of Altinum developed, on the edge of the northern lagoon of Venice.
 
The current exhibition unfolds within two floors of a nineteenth-century former rice farm following a chrono-thematic itinerary: the sections dedicated to the prehistory of the territory and the pre-Roman Altino on the ground floor and the Roman city in its various expressions of daily life , social and economic on the first floor. For the first time, pre-Roman testimonies documenting the birth and development of the city are exhibited alongside the reconstructions of important Celtic and Romanization burials. The section dedicated to buried horses with their harnesses is unique to remember the value that these animals had among the ancient Venetians.
One section houses the testimonies of the Venetian language, often present on votive offerings, such as the pottery used in the rites to document the cults practiced by the ancient Venetians alongside the other attestations of devotion. Tools of domestic life, rich ceramic and glassware, precious ornaments, alongside the evidence of the various and famous Altinato productions, such as the most precious wools, as well as the important monuments of the city illustrate the prosperity of the Roman city. The itinerary will be completed on the third floor of the building with the section dedicated to Roman funerary customs and customs and to the late antique-early medieval age.
 
Five funeral enclosures and two monumental mausoleums will be reconstructed outside in the museum garden to recall the rich funerary monuments that were found along the consular roads, such as the Annia and the Claudia Augusta. Of exceptional interest will be the exhibition dedicated to the emporium sanctuary found during the works for the construction of the museum, with dedications to the eponymous god Altino, to highlight the important role of commercial port played by the pre-Roman and Roman city.
