English Version - Summary

Who we are

We are a group of archaeological fans, working in Gallignano (CR). The group, born on 11.16.1979 as a voluntary association, nonprofit, is connected to the "Italy Archaeological Groups." The name "Gruppo Archeologico Aquaria" derives from the tradition of the legendary city, existing in this territory, which was destroyed after a prosperous life in the Celtic and Roman period.

Activity
Our activity started in 1978, when it was discovered the Anguanà well: ancient curved bricks were removed and dispersed in Gallignano houses. This dispersion was the main reason for the Archaeological Group start-up. The aim was to maintain memory, also with photographic documentation, of the discovery including identification on a map of re-location of the ancient bricks in a public site.
The Archaeological Group was formed in 1979 and the following year it was possible to open the new head office, offered by the patronage of the Covi Family. At the headquarters were deposited the first findings and the collection has gradually enriched up, till to become a small museum. In 2013 there are more than a thousand of archaeological finds recovered and disposed in the museum. We are so proud of it.
