Istituire il Parco archeologico di Altino
Una riflessione critica
Altino is a rural village near close to the Venice Lagoon in the North-East of Italy. During the Iron Age, the ancient Veneti built here an important town which was connected to the hinterland both by riverways and by overland, and to the Adriatic sea by the Lagoon. In the Roman age, this town grew and developed its market role. A Museum, two archaeological sites and the previous location of the museum with its full warehouse witness nowadays that brilliant past. The paper discusses the current management of these sites and suggests to re-think them and the wide archaeological underground area as a single site, identified by the institute as the ‘archaeological park’.
