ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK "VILLAGGIO NEOLITICO DI TRAVO"

parco archeologico strada per il fiume
Description
The S. Andrea Neolithic Village, near the Trebbia river,  presents a dense network of well-preserved dwellings and workshops, of which several can be visited.
The visit itinerary is provided with panels explaining the history of the site, the dwellings and workshops, our knowledge of the Neolithic, both in Italy and abroad. 
Since 2010 one can also see a real size reconstruction of some Neolithic buildings, made of materials and furnished with objects that are copies of the ones actually found in this place.
Inside the Park, special events are organised, a remake of the archaic pottery manufacturing and firing techniques, the chipping of flint stone, weaving and cooking.
It is also possible to experiment with the methods of research and archaeological excavation in a special simulation space, where some structures of the ancient site of S. Andrea (post holes, wells, kilns) were re-created.
