The VeDPH present the exhibition Beyond Aquileia. The Roman conquest of the Karst (2nd - 1st century BC), which was recently inaugurated at the Scientific Speleological Museum of the Grotta Gigante and at the Visitor Centre of Riserva Naturale Regionale della Val Rosandra. The exhibition explores a phase which until recently was almost unknown from an archaeological point of view — namely, the conquest and Romanisation of the territories east of Aquileia between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, with a particular focus on the Karst plateau, between Italy and Slovenia.
