Ampiano Mill

Ampiano Mill

Mulino di Situated along the Cosa stream, outside the village of Valeriano, the Mulino di Ampiano has been documented since 1320. It functioned thanks to a canal derived from the nearby watercourse. Barley was processed there, followed by maize, wheat, chestnuts and locust beans. The facility has been expanded and modified several times. In 1930, it was equipped with a Francis turbine, which operated a timber saw and a threshing machine and lit up the village, as well as setting the mill in motion. Restored in 2004 with regional funds, it preserves the old equipment and hosts cultural and recreational initiatives. The old façade was frescoed with a Madonna and Child among angels and devotees, unfortunately not well preserved, the work of Giovanni Antonio de’ Sacchis known as Pordenone. Detached from the wall in 1957, the fresco is kept in the Museo Civico di Conegliano. Inside you can see what remains of it while on the counter-façade there is a recent painting by contemporary artist Vittorio Basaglia, which pays homage to Pordenone.

Archaeological Museum in Palazzo Toffol

The area in which Montereale Valcellina stands has been inhabited for at least three thousand years: the oldest evidence of human settlements dates back to the 14th century B.C., the so-called Bronze Age. Some swords that have re-emerged from the gravel of the Cellina date back to this period, perhaps of a votive nature, linked to the cult of the torrent or of a deity linked to water.
