Ancient Vicenza

14 years later: re-discovering Ancient Vicenza

On the 20th of December 2014 the archaeological area below the Cathedral of Vicenza was inaugurated and reopened to the public. The area was discovered during some excavations carried out during the years 1946-1953 within a program of post-war reconstruction and covers an area of 750sqm, located under the great nave of the Cathedral.

The area bears witness to the existence of several places of worship, from classical antiquity to the fifteenth century, within the construction of the current building. In some parts, stratigraphic samples have detected traces of pre-Roman settlement.

The archaeological site was closed to the public in the 70's because of degradation; the restoration has brought it to light with a project started in 2000. In the coming years, the construction of a suitable path inside the area is planned, as a further enhancement project.
