Museo Civico Archeologico di Concordia Sagittaria

In 1987 the wish of the Municipal Administration to have a museum in Concordia was realized, in the centre which preserves the remains and the name of the ancient Roman colony.
This small museum, prepared in a modern simple style, stands next to the XIX° century museum of Portogruaro, which doesn’t offer more expositive space for the recent discoveries, and complete it, because in it, there are Roman monuments, which complete the remains here represented, and Paleochristian and Late Medieval monuments, coming from the excavations of the basilicas, unique for their artistic and documentary value. The Civic and State Administration intend to realize a big museum able to increase the value of the archeologicol remains, of which Concordia is still rich.
The museum might be settled in the eighteenth-century Villa Soranzo, which is now being restored.
At the moment the Museum is situated on the ground floor of the Civic Library and it shows the objects found during the excavations of the Paleochristian complex of Concordia and the objects which still come to light in the urban area or on the territory after the agricultural and building works. In the first room there are the materials coming from the Concordia necroplis; the second room has been dedicated to the remains of the town essential for the rebuilding of the life in the ancient town (amphoras, pipes, etc...........), the third room collects materials found during the excavations of the Paleochristian building in the cathedral square.
