The first floor of the Museum of Sant’Anna d’Alfaedo, which is located in a modern stone building, hosts an important collection of archaeological finds discovered in the western area of Lessinia. The prehistoric section complements the paleontological exhibition on the ground floor, which is mainly devoted to the Prun stone (stone from Lessinia) and to the large marine vertebrate fossils. The museum is part of the Regional Natural Park of Lessinia, managed by the local Mountain Community and it is networked to other museums and protected areas that are members of the Park itself.
Collection history
The first research carried out in the area of Sant’Anna d’Alfaedo was accomplished in the mid nineteenth century by Stefano de Stefani, who with a great passion discovered numerous prehistoric traces in the area of western Lessinia. Between 1915 and 1930 Raffaello Battaglia dealt mainly with the study of prehistory in Lessinia; he found many pre-historic traces and checked the work that had previously been carried out by other scholars. After the second world war, Francesco Zorzi carried on the excavation and the prehistoric survey in the area of Sant’Anna. His commitment reached its peak in the 60’s with the establishment of the Museum of Natural History, located in the Town Hall, which displayed both prehistoric and paleontological finds of the local area. Then in the late 90’s the Museum was moved to its current location.
