Gianmichele Briolo a proposito di antichità

"Headstones, Roman figures, and column are embedded in the wall around the porch on the ground floor, they were excavated in the demolitions of the villages" and the bastions of the city, and in various other parts of Piedmont, and especially among the ruins of the ancient city of industry, which was located in Monteu di Po. [...] In this same ground floor there is a museum of antiquities, distributed in various rooms, where very valuable things are contained." Quote from 1822 by Gianmichele Briolo, printer and bookseller of the Regia Academy Delle Scienze, 18th century
