Le incisioni rupestri della Val d'Assa
Il 6 e il 7 luglio 1996 si è tenuto un convegno a Gallio e a Canove di Roana (VI) sulle incisioni rupestri dell'altopiano di Asiago. Punti principali:

  • La revisione della cronologia, che ora vede l'esclusione di alcune fasi preistoriche (Neolitico - età del Rame e del Bronzo) precedentemente ipotizzate, e un'attribuzione dall'età del Ferro all'età contemporanea.
  • La richiesta di maggiore intervento delle istituzioni per lo studio e la valorizzazione, tramite la creazione di una zona o riserva archeologica.

A meeting on "Asiago plateau engraved rocks" was held at Gallio and Canove di Roana (VI - I) Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July 1996. It was clearly pointed that the chronology must be revised (now suggested from Iron Age to contemporary period) and that an archaeological reserve must be created to better study and to preserve the engraved rocks.
