MUSEUM OF GEOLOGY AND PALEONTOLOGY

The Museum of Geology and Paleontology is housed in the Palazzo Cavalli, a Villa of the XVI century, which until 2011 was the former site of the Department of Geology. The Vertebrate and Plant Halls, as well as the “Sala delle Palme" (Palm Hall), were restored and opened to the public in 2009, while the frescoes of the XVII-XVIII century of other parts of the building are still under restoration. The paleobotanical collections of Barone Achille De Zigno and of the botanist Antonio De Visiani are stored in the museum.
