The origins of Vicus Ussoni

From Sunday 13 October to 13 November in Vigolzone

The origins of Vicus Ussoni
The exhibition “Alle origini di Vicus Ussoni. Storia di un popolamento antico: Vigolzone tra l’età del ferro e il periodo longobardo” (The origins of Vicus Ussoni. History of an ancient settlement: Vigolzone between the Iron Age and Lombard times), which opened on 13 October during the Autumn Fair, will remain open to the public every Saturday and Sunday until 10 November. Throughout this period it will also be possible to book visits for groups or didactic activities in the morning from Monday to Friday.

Pre-Roman material discovered near Monte Dinavolo, Poggio di Carmiano and Bagnolo is on display, together with Roman remains from Mansano di Carmiano, Stradella and other sites, as well as Lombard graves and tomb goods (early Middle Ages) found at Borgo di Sotto.

The iniziative springs from the GAVN (Gruppo Archeologico della Val Nure) with the scientific supervision of the Soprintendenza ai Beni Archeologici dell’Emilia Romagna and the patronage of the municipality of Vigolzone. The objective is to extend the knowledge of the archaeological heritage of Vigolzone by exhibiting the objects discovered within the municipality.

The style is educational so as to offer information on the ancient history of Vigolzone to a non-specialist public, with the aim of filling a gap, given the almost total absence of publications on the subject.

The exhibition, in the newly-opened Civic Centre of Vigolzone (formerly the elementary schools) was officially opened at 11 am on Sunday 13 October and remained open to the public all day.
Until 10 November the exhibition will be open to groups and educational activities from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 1 pm (only by appointment), and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm and from 2 to 7 pm.
Entrance free.
