The Great Rivers Museum, recently moved to the ancient Monastry of Olivetani, gathers the archaeological finds from the area of the delta Po around Polesine, which is marked by the presence of two major rivers, namely Po and Adige. The museum layout is innovative thanks to the use of modern technologies which enables visitors better to enjoy the exhibition and enhances the value of the territory. The museum is divided into three sections: the Bronze Age, the Iron Age and the Roman Age sections.
Collection history
The museum of Great Rivers houses part of the collection originally owned by Camillo Silvestri, a distinguished collector who founded the Museum Silvestrium in the mid 17th century, later to become the modern Civic Museum. After his death, the remaining items were sold to Scipione Maffei and to the priests of the Episcopal Seminary in Rovigo.
