Palazzo Mocenigo (XVI century) – National Museum Atestino
Este is the fulcrum of the history of the ancient Veneti, whose most representative archaeological remains are conserved in the National Museum Atestino. Living in this region throughout the first millennium B.C., the Veneti were an ancient Italic civilisation, rather peaceful and industrious. Great farmers, livestock producers and in particular of horses (the horse for the Veneti was nothing less than a sacred animal), they mastered the art of bronze and they were involved in flourishing craft and merchant activities. The Roman section of the museum illustrates the transformation of the city of Ateste, between I century B.C. and II century A.D., while a small section is dedicated to medieval, Renaissance and modern ceramics.
