History, Art, and Culture

The territory of Colli Euganei is rich in vestiges of the Ancient Veneti. A great number of finds, telling the history of this area from prehistory to the Roman Age, is preserved in Este, in Atestino National Museum.
The most ancient finds, coming from areas of Mt. della Madonna and Venda, date back to the Paleolithic Age and consist of flint tools. Meaningful ceramic objects date back to the Neolithic Age (end of the 4th millennium BC): plenty were found near Castelnuovo. Weapons, tools, decoration objects and clothes dating back to the Bronze Age (2nd millennium BC), showing the presence of a lake village, have been found near Lago della Costa, in Arquà Petrarca.
