Longobard Necropolis near the Asti-Cuneo motorway

The largest Longobard necropolis in Italy, having 760 tombs -  and one of the most important in Europe because being of a specific century, the VII -  emerged at Sant'Albano Stura, during the works for the Asti-Cuneo motorway. A great discovery, because of the many tombs have funerary items. The necropolis was discovered in the spring 2009; just today the supervisor of Archaeological Studies, Egle Micheletto, gives the announcement, a few weeks after the conclusion of  excavations.
