The “Antonio Eugenio Baruffaldi” civic museum is made up of 13 sections, which display objects referring to different historical periods (from the Italian unification to the second world war), in which the focus is on human beings, with their passions and their pains. The museum is also provided with a small room devoted to the most ancient history of the area surrounding Badia Polesine, in which it is possible to see prehistoric, roman and medieval objects.
Collection history
In the early 50’s Professor Ivan Tardivello started to collect a remarkable amount of objects, photographs ad documents, which in 1968 made up the “Civic collection”, displayed in some of the rooms of the Town Hall of the municipality of Badia Polesine. Thereafter the collection, which in the meantime had been further expanded, was moved several times, and finally in 1977, it was arranged in the building of the former Mount of Piety, which hosts it still today.
