Yesterday in the councilor chamber was held the press conference to present the Archeologia in Provincia di Lecco: operazioni di tutela e valorizzazione di reperti restituiti allo Stato (Archaeology in the Province of Lecco: steps to protect and promote archaeological remains returned to the State).

Alessandra Hofmann, Presidente of the Provincia di Lecco,  Anna Ranzi, Curatore of Villa Monastero, Giuseppe Stolfi, Soprintendente Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio for the provinces of Como, Lecco, Monza e Brianza, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese, and Alice Maria Sbriglio, Funzionario archeologo, Soprintendenza Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio for the provinces of Como, Lecco, Monza e Brianza, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese, intervened at the press conference.

The constant protection on the territory conducted by the Soprintendenza has allowed to recovery of two important archaeological finds, held by private. The precious collaboration between the Direzione Regionale Musei della Lombardia and the Provincia di Lecco will allow to enhance these important finds inside the Sistema Museale della Provincia di Lecco.

In 2022, thousands of ceramic fragments from the six-eighteenth century were recovered in Sorico. They come from the nearby Forte di Fuentes. The tableware offers an important view of the daily life of the Forte and now it is under restoration, thanks also to the availability of the Banca Credito Cooperativo Valsassina.

An archaeological collection of exceptional historical value will be available to the public in Villa Monastero probably next year, thanks to the signing of the protocol agreement between the Ministry of Culture and the Provincia di Lecco. It is almost two hundred finds coming from different cultural contexts, such as the Magna Grecia, the Etruscan and the Roman world. Prominent among these is a group of Apulian vases with very elaborate polychrome decoration, and elegant Etruscan chalices in bucchero.
