"Ce lo dicono anche i reperti dell'età del Ferro rinvenuti in Val di Non e conservati al Museo Retico"

As we go through this unprecedented health crisis culture doesn't stop, and we invite everybody, families with children and for the world of education to to engage with interesting online initiatives to discover the most ancient history of Trentino.

The Archaeological Heritage Office of the Department for Cultural Heritage has joined the initiative #iorestoacasa of the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage; in fact, everybody is invited to take a virtual journey through the social channels to discover the Spazio Archeologico Sotterraneo del Sas (Sass Underground Archaeological Space), the Museo delle Palafitte di Fiavé (Fiavè Pile dwelling Museum) and of the Museo Retico (Rhaetic Museum).   

On the Facebook profiles (Cultural Heritage Directorate of The Autonomous Province of Trento), Instagram (@Soprintendenza_beni_culturali) and Twitter (@Beniarcheo) you can find a daily event, labelled#archeologiatrentino, which recounts the museums and archaeological sites of the Roman Tridentum, and so doing it stimulates the interests of all of us who are at home, it gives us food for thought and makes us feel close despite the distance

Specific materials are available for teachers and families with children, created by the “Servizi educativi” (office for educational activities).

The ctivities dedicated to the large community of virtual visitors are available on the website of the Department for Cultural Heritage.

"A scuola con l'archeologia #iorestoacasa- "at school with archaeology addresses the school world, teachers, pupils, students who are at home during this period and cannot take part in the didactic paths and workshops of the office for educational activities.

The museum educators, Luisa Moser, Maria Raffaella Caviglioli, Elia Forte, Gianluca Fondriest, Mirta Franzoi and Irene Moltrer, have prepared materials to prepare the lessons and to use archaeology contents also at a distance.  On the site you can find links to download structured sheets relating to various chronological periods from the Palaeolithic to the early Middle Ages, thematic routes and educational workshops that are normally held in the classroom or in museums.  In addition to this new material, you will also find the in-depth information which is usually handed out during the visits and workshops.  For teachers, an online desk has been activated for suggestions, details, further materials or for a moment of comparison with the museum educators. Teachers can write to or call the number: 0461 492150.

"Archeologo anch'io" - I'm an archaeologist too is the section dedicated to families with children and kindergarten schools that comes from the experience of the youngest visitors to the Spazio Archeologico Sotterraneo del Sas (Sass Underground Archaeological Space), the Museo delle Palafitte di Fiavé (Fiavè Pile dwelling Museum), of the Museo Retico (Rhaetic Museum) and of the Redebus Pass "Acqua fredda" archaeological site. The museum educators have created a series of materials that can be downloaded from the portal: stories, comics, games, tips to learn, by having fun, how our ancestors lived in antiquity. 


“Te lo spiego io!" - "I'll explain it to you" is a series of small nice and compelling guides made by children for children to discover the archaeology of Trentino.

The small guide of the Fiavè Pile dwelling Museum is in Italian, Hindi, Macedonian, Ukrainian and Urdu, that is the languages spoken by the children of the Fiavé nursery school.
