"Domenico Dal Lago" Civic Museum
The creation of the museum is a result of a long process of selection, arrangement, and historical research on the historical collection of Dr. Domenico Dal Lago, carried out by a group of geology and palaeontology enthusiasts, coordinated by Prof. Paolo Mietto of the University of Padua.
Various studies carried out on the collection and on the artefacts acquired subsequently helped deepen the knowledge of the ancient history of the territory of the Agno Valley and of the province of Vicenza.
Opened in 1995, in a hall of the Public Library of Villa Valle, it was transferred later to Palazzo Festari.
The Museum is constantly evolving, offers to the public a number of initiatives and continues the research, also aimed at spreading scientific knowledge related to the area.
In 2006, the Museum has opened a section dedicated to archaeology, created thanks to numerous artefacts deposited in the museum and as a result of excavations, donations and occasional findings in the area of Alta Valle dell'Agno.
