Via Annia was the wide road made in the Roman period to connect north-eastern Italy with the rest of the road system of the peninsula. It was fundamental to connect the country with middle Europe, as well as to allow both the military and cultural penetration of Rome. Now, Via Annia is part of an important project of restoration and enhancement of the road that linked Aquileia, passing through the territories of Padua, Altino and Concordiato, to a southern terminal. The experts are still discussing to define if such terminal was Andria or Bologna. Since the rooms dedicated to Via Annia in the Archaeological Museum were opened to the public, after the restoration of tomb equipment and of other finds unearthed by the Via Annia Project, it is possible to admire some important parts of the Roman Padua, which were kept till now inside the stores of the museum, while others emerged from the recent archaeological research.
