Vicolo Aquila Nera

Description

One of the most extensive archaeological sites can be found in Vicolo Aquila Nera. Unearthed by chance in the 80s during the construction of a storage area of the Angelo Maj Library. The site has a real millenarian split in a portion of the slope occupied from the fifth century B.C. until 1800. The oldest traces refer to the settlement of the Celtic Golasecchians. In the Middle Ages the New Monastery stood in this area. Not far away are the remains of pipes, glazed and engraved pottery vases and furnishings of a pipe shop.
