After an important renovation, the “Vittorino Cazzetta” Museum in Selva di Cadore has reopened with a fine new look.
The exhibition of finds is fascinating and engaging also for a non-specialised audience and for children. The spatial arrangement is enriched by the expert and balanced use of technology – in the geo-paleontological room, for example, there is an holographic projection that highlights the cast of the Dolomitic rock (Mount Pelmo) where the Dinosaurs’ trail were found for the first time in Italy, showing up the trail disposition of footprints.
In the archeological part, you are projected to the site of Mondeval de Sora (2,150 m), where the burial of a hunter lived around 7,500 years ago was found under an erratic block. Towards the end of the tour, the lights dim becoming a starry sky in a clear night, which shrouds, with a breathtaking scenography, the intact skeleton of the Mondeval hunter, the real jewel of the museum.
At the second floor, there are the protohistoric and historic sections. Here, on display the Late Neolithic and Eneolithic finds coming from the Mandriz site (flints, faunistic remains, terracotta). Besides these, several epigraphic evidences, such as the Pre-romanic boundary stone of Mount Pore and the three boundary rupestrian inscriptions of Mount Civetta.
Several Medieval parchments introduce the history of Selva di Cadore and its relationships with the surrounding area. The exhibition ends with a detailed document about the nearby Fursil mines and the Iron Way.
