The open-air buildings reconstructions is a combined scientific and educational effort together with safety, towards a better comprehension of the Middle Neolithic building techniques, finding its base in the Neolithic archaeological sites found in Northern Italy and further north. Besides the hut, there are some complementary buildings, as a warehouse and a stable with its enclosure.
Plant and animal remains found within the archaeological site are essential to defining what and how the neolithic village people ate. An English translation of base and further topics have been made available, to let everyone easily enjoy the Lago Pistono site.
