Area 2000




Aperta a ridosso del perimetro settentrionale della chiesa, il saggio ha lo scopo di indagare le fasi cimiteriali della prima metà del XIX secolo. Dopo aver acquisito oltre un centinaio di sepolture moderne, tra cui quelle risalenti all’epidemia di colera del 1855, sono state individuate in profondità decine di sepolture medievali dell’epoca dell’abbazia di San Pietro (XII-XIV secolo).
