Description

Built in the late thirties of the last century by the futurist architect Quirino De Giorgio, the “Borgo Rurale” named after the Grinzato brothers has been revived since 2016, in its essential lines, thanks to the recovery promoted by the Municipality of Vigonza. Precisely during the activities aimed at restoring the complex, in 2015 the evidence of an unexpected archaeological context emerged, investigated by the then Superintendency Archeologia del Veneto. The most singular evidence is constituted by a building of the Roman period with a "T" plan, interpreted as a chapel, which is associated with a nine-sided well. A wooden well and several post holes, characteristic features of a medieval settlement, must be traced back to a later chronological moment. Other investigations, at the nearby via Tintoretto, later discovered the traces of a small stream, buried by the deposits of the Brenta river already during the early Iron Age, as well as a furnace and some agricultural channels probably related to the neighboring monastic complex of Santa Margherita. An articulated interdisciplinary working group has collected and analyzed archaeological and paleoenvironmental data, thus making it possible to sketch for the first time the evolutionary framework of a portion of the territory, located on the edge of the north-east Padua centuriation, hitherto almost completely unknown.
