Gold and Bessa Nature Reserve Museum

Request information

Vermogno is situated on a large glacial moraine called the Serra, part of the larger Ivrea morainic amphitheater. There was extensive gold mining in the reserve area during Roman times between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. The man-made landscape, dominated by huge piles of rounded stones, was created over time as gold was prospected. The museum has a collection of documents that explain how gold was extracted manually over the centuries. Visitors will not only be accompanied around the archaeological site but will also have the opportunity to pan for gold along the River Elvo.

Entrance free 

Location: Zubiena (Viverone, Serra and Bessa)
