  • Is the home of Hercules Gallò, a businessman of Italian origin (Piedmont I think ...) that in this part of Serra Gaucha founded Galopolis, a few km from Caxias to On. Here the Veneto breathes through the streets of this small village with ancient textiles (still resists the factory created in late 800 from immigrants by Lanificio Red Baron Schio, Vicenza), feels and taste at the table and can be seen also in architecture both civil and industrial (I would say, in the case of industrial archaeological Lanificio San Pedro). To guide the work of skilled master weavers Scledensi (in Schio) en route with the "paron", and then forced to emigrate, he thought the fam. Gallò that with Hercules saw grow the wool mill, the social and economic fabric, and then the "wool Town" that we see today. Gallò Institute, Museum which is well worth a visit, are documented the evolutions of the site referred to the family but also to the social reality which marked this Wool Village alive to testify in time the value of emigration Veneta Riograndese State.

  • Although it has not been able to visit the collection, participated in seminar on complex and I was charmed with the whimsy that is kept this place. It's not like an ancient structure. It looks like we're back in time.
