The Roman Archaeological Museum Albino Umilta in Brescello investigates the history of the village that later became famous thanks to the cinematographic events of Don Camillo and Peppone.
In fact, Brescello has a very important past that dates back to the 4th century B.C., when it was founded by the Cenomani Gauls, until it became an important Roman town that controlled the traffic along the Po river axis from the 1st century B.C. to the 2nd century A.D.
The visit begins with the exploration of the necropolis of Brixellum, where you can recognize some original stelae and a copy of the monument to the Concordi, a funerary enclosure of Gens Concordia found in Boretto in 1929 and placed in the gardens of Reggio Emilia, which represents one of the most interesting expressions of the Roman funerary relief in the whole northern Italy.
Moreover, it is possible to observe the reconstruction of a typical Roman domus with mosaic floors.
