Rhaetian Museum

The Rhaetian Museum (Museo Retico) exhibits findings dating back to the period from 3,000 BC to the Roman age and illustrates the history of the Val di Non.

The Rhaetian Museum is located in Sanzeno in the charming Val di Non valley, there where the science-oriented trail starts to the pilgrimage site San Romedio. The museum was inaugurated in 2003.

The collection includes findings dating back to the period from 3,000 BC up to the Roman age, as well as Rhaetian testimonia. The people of Raeti, called Reti in Italian, lived in the period between the 6th and the 1st century BC. It was an ethnic group of the ancient world that domiciled in the central and eastern Alpine area and mainly settled down in today's Trentino and Tyrol. When the Alpine area was conquered by Augustus in the years 16-15 BC, the Rhaetian people were subjected to Rome and annexed to the province of Rhaetia. The Romans left behind evidence of the Raetians, and the most important archaeological excavations in the entire Alpine region were carried out in Sanzeno.

In the museum itself, you can follow an educational trail called "Pozzo del tempo", which could be translated as "Walking History of Time" or "Time Shaft". It leads upwards from the ground floor and shows the entire history of the Val di Non valley in the form of a spiral. The exhibits range from prehistoric tools to Rhaetian and Roman finds as well as evidence from the time of the Goths and Lombards.

After the visit to the Rhaetian Museum of Sanzeno, if you want to do a short hike, you can take the path to the San Romedio Sanctuary (about 1 hour).
