The Archaeological Museum of Cologna Veneta, which is located in an elegant nineteenth-century palace, collects the archaeological documentation coming from the left side of the Adige river and covering a very wide chronological time period going from the Neolithic to the Lombard Age. Each of the three rooms is dedicated to important people from Cologna: Anna Rinaldi Gruber, a well-known local scholar, Cesare Gardellini, a municipal secretary and founder of the Museum, Eusebio Checchetti who, during the second world war, prevented the most important pieces from being certainly looted.
Collection history
The museum was created in 1896 after the accidental finding of the necropolis of Baldaria. The museum building was established by the then Municipal Secretary, Cesare Cardellini. The frequent and occasional discoveries of archaeological finds dating back both to the Roman Age and to previous periods, contributed to enrich the collection until it was necessary to change the museum location. Since 1991, the museum collection, previously kept in the Town Hall, has been located in the Palace of the former Mount of Piety in Piazza Duomo.
