अधिक जानकारी
The history of the Provincial Museum of Torcello began in 1870 when Luigi Torelli, the prefect of Venice, purchased the Palazzo del Consiglio to house artifacts found out in Torcello, in the adjacent islands and in the near mainland.  In 1872 Torelli donated the property to the Province of Venice.
In 1887 the archaeologist Cesare Augusto Levi succeeded in the management of the museum, extended its collections and renovated the archaeological collection of the Palazzo dell’Archivio, then donated to the provincial authorities.
Between 1928 and 1930 the director Adolfo Callegari rearranged the collections with interventions of inventory and cataloguing.
In 1974, after a radical restoration of the Palazzo del Consiglio and of the objects exhibited, the medieval and modern section was opened.
In the following years the Palazzo dell’Archivio was restored and the present archaeological section was inaugurated in the summer of 1990 with a new layout.
At present the museum houses a collection of works reflecting the history of the Venetian lagoon from private collections, archaeological finds and artifacts purchased by collectors, as well as other handicrafts discovered in Torcello, the adjacent islands and the mainland nearby.
The museum is divided into two main sections: the archaeological and the medieval and modern sections.
The Archaeological Section, housed in the Palazzo dell’Archivio, contains archaeological finds dating from the prehistoric to the Paleochristian periods, with artifacts of different origin, from the Greek, Italic, Etruscan and Roman ceramics in their varied decorative styles and manufacturing techniques to pre-historic Etruscan bronzes used as votive objects, tableware, utensils, votive and funerary figures of worship discovered in the area around Altino, brooches and mirrors for personal and ornamental use, some of which are of certain local manufacture.
The Roman finds are represented by sacred bronze statuettes, busts, heads of divinities and worshippers, animals, decorated tablets, Roman ceramics of differing types and manufacture. There are kitchen-table ware for funeral use and glasses and goblets from the UpperAdriatic; There are various types of terracotta oil lamps: circular, matrix, decorated with religious designs, private motifs, with images of circus games, animals and plants.
The Medieval and Modern Section, which is housed in the Palazzo del Consiglio, contains objects and documents from the first centuries of the Christian era until the 19th cent. A.D. presenting the history of the island of Torcello and its relations with the area of Altino, the Byzantine culture and the city of Venice. Stoneworks and architectural fragments dating back to the Early Middle Ages witness the Bizantine influence in the lagoon area and the progressive fitting to Western decorative patterns with their braids, wavy-designed frames, geometric interlaces with stylized flowers or more complex motifs of animals and plants.
The mosaic fragments of the 12th cent. A.D with the Head of Christ and the Angels in the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta before the restoration of the 19th century. The golden silver Pala d’Altare of the 13th century also come from there.
The Section also contains paintings from the ruined church of Sant’Antonio at Torcello, attributed to the workshop of Paolo Caliari, known as Veronese. Of Venetian manufacture are the wooden polychrome sculpture of the half of the 15th century representing the Pietà, and Santa Fosca, whose body was buried in the church of the same name in Torcello.
The intense social life that used to be in Torcello is confirmed by documents, seals and pottery collection relating the civil and ecclesiastic life in the island.
The Museum also keeps documents, drawings, prints, photographs and a library supporting the activity of the Museum. Access and consultation are allowed with permission of the Museum Director only.
