Summary
The civic museum of Asolo, which is located in the Bishop’s Palace, hosts the archaeological collections, the Picture gallery, the Cathedral Treasure and a section devoted to Caterina Cornaro and Eleonora Duse. The archaeological section, which is organized in six rooms, displays the material discovered thanks to the excavations carried out in the nineteenth and twentieth century in the municipality of Asolo and its surroundings. This material, which dates back to a time span between Paleolithic and the Middle Ages, confirms the topographic importance of Asolo since ancient times and the central role that this town played over the centuries in the trade relations between the valley and the mountain.
Collection history
After Pacifico Scomazzetto’s sudden and premature death, in 1986, his heirs interpreted his will, donating all the artistic-historical and archaeological material he had collected, to the municipality of Asolo with the purpose of establishing the civic museum. Even though donations had been made for more than 50 years, it was only in that very moment, that the museum was officially established in the Sala della Ragione, which hosted the Town Hall too. Thereafter private donations increased, thus leading to a remarkable growth in the material displayed in the museum.
