The Museum of the Valleys of Argenta



Situated inside the Campotto Country Lodge, a wonderful example of country architecture of the second half of the 18th century, the Museum of the Valleys and the Val Campotto Oasis offer an itinerary through the history and natural environment typical of the Southern Ferrara Valley.
The Museum functions as organisation centre for the whole Argenta Ecomuseum for services, information, booking and guided tours and it carries out activities to promote tourism in the area. It is also an acknowledged environmental education centre of the Emilia Romagna Centre.
In 2007 the museum underwent some restyling: the anthropological section on the ground floor now exhibits artefacts, tools and archeological finds typical of life in the valley and of the processing of marsh herbs. Upstairs, in the naturalistic section, models, images and videos show the four different environments present in the Val Campotto Oasis: lamineto, reed beds, wetland fields and hygrophyle woodlands. To complete this section, the multisensory hall offers the possibility of taking a virtual tour in the Oasis with images, sounds and special effects.
