ORANGE ROOM: agriculture and livestock 

This room is dedicated to land allocation and the cult of the boundaries, as well as farming and livestock. There is a showcase which houses the reconstruction of a plow and some agricultural tools as well as some iron tools and fragments of the large terracotta jars which were used for storing food (dolia).

But the most interesting element in the room is the burial of a horse recently found in the territory of Borgoricco. This is the skeleton of an adult horse that dates back to Roman times and has been extraordinarily preserved to the present day. This is evidence of the burial rituals connected to horses that began in the pre-Roman Veneto age and continued into the Roman times.
