Cultural Park of the Equi Grottos and the Archeological Museum

The link between the Fivizzano territory and human settlements

The Cultural Park of the Equi Grottos is composed of an archeological park, an archeological museum and a series of natural, prehistoric caverns and grottos. A visit to the park is organized in such a way that allows visitors to explore the grottos, which are closely linked to the nearby human settlements that took place from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic eras. The museum illustrates how important the grottos were for the early human settlements in the area. In order to avoid further damaging the original artifacts that these early settlements used in daily life, the museum displays designs and reconstruction of these items alongside informational placards that describe the life of humans and animals in these areas, and how they managed to live alongside one another to survive. The museum targets two categories of visitors: adults and children. Adults are offered details in the informational placards and children are offered didactic activities and games.Also part of the park is the Augusto Cesare Ambrosi Archeology Museum offering didactic workshops on nature and experimental archeology.
