Fiavè Pile-dwelling Museum

The Museum houses wooden objects and food, amazingly still intact after nearly 4 thousand years

The Museo delle palafitte, in the old Carli house in Fiavé, provides an extraordinary window on the daily life of the inhabitants of prehistoric Trentino. A prehistoric village in one of the largest models ever realised, with over 70 characters.

On the shores of Lake Carera, of glacial origin and now a peat bog, man has been living at least from the Mesolithic era (7 thousand years B.C.) to the end of the Bronze Age. Between the 4th and 2nd millennium B.C. there were pile-dwelling villages here, still visible today in the archaeological area.
The museum hosts a selection of the extraordinary objects found by archaeologists, especially pottery, but also jewels made of bronze and – very rare at the time – Baltic amber and gold.

Quite exceptional are the wooden objects, some of the most ancient in the world, having been preserved for 3,800-3,400 years: cups, ladles, whisks, trays, buckets, clubs, sickles, drills, axe handles. And then the remains of food that these people used to grow and gather.
One whole floor is entitled A day in a pile-dwelling: the reconstruction of daily life in a village of about 3,500 years ago!
