Ostellato Territory Museum is dedicated to the evolution of earth and man in history. Starting from the origins of the Universe and the birth of the Earth until present times, it retraces the stages of the Man-Environment relationship, made of changes and mutual influences. The display, organized in the premises of Corte Valle barn, deals on the ground floor with the evolution of earth and man in the Po Plain and on the first floor with the history and transformation of the delta. A special section is reserved to the Etruscan period and the town of Spina, characterized by a "setting" trying to evoke its daily life.
Four interactive sites situated in the central part of the first floor offer an important instrument providing tourist information on the territory of the Po Delta.
The museum can be considered as an archaeological journey which, holding dialogue with the other local museums, deals with the identity characterizing our area and with the cultural exchanges that in the past have contributed to enrich the human evolution.
