The first archaeological exhibition organised in Patù, aims at providing a summary framework of the three main historical periods - The Messapian, the Roman and the medieval period - around which the story of the settlement of the ancient city of Vereto took place, leaving relevant monumental traces, some of which still show a remarkable preservation status. This initiative is related to the fortunate circumstance of the recovery of the historic habitation, purchased by the municipality of Patù, of Liborio Romano, key figure of the events that led to the unification of Italy. Liborio Romano was born in Patù and his remains lie in the chapel opposite located in Piazza Indipendenza. The exhibition is closely connected with the particular symbolic value of this building, and its opening coincides with the celebration of the 150 years of the Italian unification. On this occasion, the equipped itineraries organised in the archaeological area of the hill of Vereto will be inaugurated, right where, in some Marian places, as the church of Madonna Vereto and the local road of Uschia Pagliare, the regional board of the ministry of cultural heritage and environmental conservation has conducted recent excavation investigations.
