The History of the Po Delta has a new home. In 2017 the Museo Delta Antico has been opened in Comacchio, inside the evocative seat of a completely restored eighteenth century former hospital. This museum is the outcome of a long and exciting path aimed to return to a territory the signs of its past, thanks also to a compelling and interactive design. The Museum Guide is a easy and narrative tool to introduce the archaeological treasures disclosed from Delta’s unique landscape. The reader will follow the evolution of the environment, the spread of first human settlement, the splendors of the Etruscan period up to Roman Medieval masterpieces. Highlights of the Museum are the town of Spina, with the rich grave goods from its cemetery, the outstanding cargo of a Roman shipwreck and the remains of the Late Antiquity and Medieval Comacchio.
