Production area: MONTE ZOPPEGA
The name Etas originates from material taken from the book: “3000 years ago in Verona”. The book was published as a catalogue to accompany an exhibition of the same name which was held at Verona’s Natural History Museum from 1 July to 31 December 1976. The exhibition included a speci c reference to the Monte Zoppega area. In fact, it spoke of: “Traces of inhabitation on its heights. Re- mains found there relate to primitive Veneto region culture towards the end of the Bronze Age.” Therefore Etas refers to a return to the land, to our origins and invites contemplation of the history that also “re-emerges” materially from our hills.
