Museo della centuriazione romana
The Roman Centuriation Museum is seated in Borgoricco's Civic Centre, designed by the famous architect Aldo Rossi, and it collects founds coming from the huge area of Roman Centuriation in the North East of Padua. The new exposition, opened in February 2009, is made up of four rooms in which are explained, besides the main theme of centuriation, other topics like business activities, agriculture and everyday life activities in Roman Age. The Museum's arrangements has been thought to be mainly educational: the exposition of items found in the surrounding territory is complete with teaching boards and with accurate reconstructions, like a loom, a kiln and a plough, which allows to everyone an easy understanding of the different topics. There are many cultural activities for visitors, guided tours and educational programs for students, adults and families. Educational sessions for children, from four to eighteen years old, are rich: guided tours and creative activities are introduced by classroom's lessons according to the direction of teachers. The educational programs take place in the big room of the ground floor, while in the garden behind the Museum children can try the digging enquiry. Guided tours and creative activities are offered for free by the Assessorato alla Cultura of Borgoricco's Municipality during "Mostra del Libro" , in the end of March, "Terra di Storia", in May, where visitors can find many other activities, and "Vacanze di Natale al Museo", in December.
