Museo dei Grandi Fiumi (Museum of the Great Rivers)

Piazzale San Bartolomeo, 18

The architectural structure of San Bartolomeo dates back to the 13 th century and reached its prime of life during the 16 th and 17 th centuries, with the expansion of the Olivetan monastery, decorated with frescoes, sculptures and paintings built around two cloisters and courtyards.

In this stunning Renaissance setting, the museum exhibits and honours the archaeological, environmental and cultural heritage of Polesine, a land shaped by two of the most important Italian rivers, Po and Adige.

Its innovative design combines the original findings from the 2 nd millennium B.C to the modern age realistic reproductions to interact with, scenic settings, multimedia installations, dioramas, scale models.

An external Roman lapidary, as well as the new room "Museo in Scena" (the museum on stage), has been added to the display, dedicated to the artist director and scenographer from Rovigo, Gabbris Ferrari, the creator of most of the displays.
