Archaeological Park of the Neolithic Village of Sant’Andrea – Travo

The Archaeological Park of the Neolithic Village of Sant’Andrea was established in Val Trebbia in 2006, thanks to the joint efforts of the Superintendence, Region, Municipality, Fondazione di Piacenza e Vigevano and Associazione La Minerva. The Park intends to promote the site of Sant’Andrea, where ongoing research that began in the 1980s brought to light a village extending over at least one hectare, a unique finding in the context of northern Italian prehistory. The village features an outdoor replica of a prehistoric village and real-life replicas of three wood and straw homes. The Civic Museum, housed in the Anguissola Castle – which also houses, since 1997, the exhibition on “Val Trebbia from the Palaeolithic to the Roman era” – displays stone, ceramic, and bone artefacts from digs and research carried out by the Associazione La Minerva’s volunteers.
