Overview
More
At the Museum "Giuseppe Olivi" visitors can examine many Adriatic organisms and learn about their characteristics and the typical marine and brackish environments of this area. In each room, descriptive panels and multimedia stations introduce themes concerning the loss of biodiversity, the fragility of ecosystems and the vulnerability of species. These presentations are aimed to provide insights into the relationship between man and sea ecosystems, tradition and innovation in the use of resources, and the future of managing activities. We hope the museum "Giuseppe Olivi" shall contribute to the raising of respect and responsibility towards the sea, an inheritance which, today more than ever, requires a sustainable approach to be managed.

Small museum depicting the animal life of the Adriatic Sea, with several displays of different kinds of fish. Noteworthy is the stuffed Basking Shark caught on a net in 2003 not far from Chioggia.

It has 2 bigger and 4 smaller rooms. Beside the basking shark it presents a lot of preserved Adriatic sea animals. The smaller rooms has some interactive elements especially for younger visitors.
