On July 28th 2015, it opened to the public the archeological area of the Old Port of Classe The museums project plans the rebirth of old elements as part of a modern usability which aims to accessibility, multimedia and interactivity. The path, developed over an area of approximately 10 000 square meters, takes a look at the journey of the old traveler and proposes the places visited by those who worked in warehouses or arrived by sea after docking at the port, submerging visitors to the inner part of the archeological site. The walking of the entire area is done with the hollow core staves Novowood color Copper Brown placed on special aluminum currents with an omega profile.Read less
