BLUE ROOM: economic
This room houses the evidence of the economic activities of land division territory. The main industry was the production of tiles and bricks, often marked with the trademark of the factory they were made in. There is the reconstruction of a rectangular plan Roman kiln which allows us to understand the production phase of the brick cooking. There is a showcase with material recently discovered at such a production site in Borgoricco which includes the refined clay slabs decorated with plants that were used to decorate the facades of important buildings and were probably produced here.
There also some Roman amphorae on display which were found in the soil deposits of a drainage ditch; there are some explanatory panels and a showcase dedicated to the trade of food transported in amphorae.
The exhibition is completed by three showcases that house the material that comes from the occasional surface findings, glass and metal objects, weights and counterweights and scals and various coins, dating to a time span between the first century. B.C. and the 4th century AD.
