Ethnographic Museum Palazzo Veneziano di Malborghetto
For a dive into history and Valcanale culture
An essential starting point to get to know Valcanale, its history, traditions, and splendid nature is the Venetian Palace, home to the territorial ethnographic museum and one of the oldest (late 1500s) most magnificent buildings in the valley. Built as the home of a wealthy iron industrialist, at the time when Malborghetto was a flourishing “Market City” of the Bishopric of Bamberg (Germany), the Venetian Palace proposes a fascinating “journey” through geology, palaeontology, natural sciences, history and ethnography. It gives insight and dioramas and engaging projections into aspects concerning the Tarvisio Forest and the very original, ancient and vital traditions resulting from the convergence of the three great European cultures Latin, German and Slavic.
In the garden of Palazzo Veneziano, you can admire a centuries-old lime tree, a true natural monument.
