Publications "MEMORIE DAL PASSATO. L'abitato e la necropoli di Pedemonte a Gravellona Toce"
Raccolta di studi introduttivi alla mostra a cura di Francesca Garanzini
The exhibition “Memorie dal passato. L’abitato e la necropoli di Pedemonte a
Gravellona Toce” originated from the cooperation between the Soprintendenza
Archeologia, Belle arti e Paesaggio per le province di Biella, Novara, Verbano-Cusio- Ossola e Vercelli and the city of Gravellona Toce, that specifically endorsed an agreement for the promotion of historical and archaeological studies in the municipal territory.
The exhibition is specially dedicated to Felice Pattaroni’s excavations at Pedemonte in the 1950s, which highlighted the remains of an ancient settlement (first century BCE - fifth century CE) and of a burial ground
(fifth century BCE - fourth century CE). In order to give an in-depth (but necessarily not complete) study of the ancient contexts (both settlement and burial ground) the display follows five thematic sections (body and appearance, manufacture activities and commerce, kitchen- and tableware, the burial ground), housed in the three exhibition rooms.
This exhibition would not have been
possible if Fondazione Compagnia di San
Paolo did not appreciate the idea and
decided to support it.
