Historical notes

Rich of historical finds of great value, as two acephalous statues (the first one, that depicts a toga, comes from the Museum of Parma, the second one, probably represents a merchant of the river a testimony of the wealth reached by the ancient Brixellum) the museum shows the Roman finds found in Brescello, the recent excavations in Brescia and a the reconstruction of the domestic environments. With the aid of display panels and projection screens, you can gets the impression of physically entering the Roman Brixellum as a path that faithfully reconstructs the access roads to the city and to the center of the country.
Brescello, or Brixellum, was a fundamental settlement for Imperial Rome, located in a strategic area along the streets of our territory. The history of Brescello about 26 centuries ago, before Reggiana (Regium Lepidi) and the territory of Brescia extended beyond the current border with the province of Parma to the west and included the territory of the current boretto municipality to the east.
