The Archeology Museum unites artifacts from the Etruscan-Roman period and the Middle Ages which were discovered in excavations in the area. The course through the museum begins with an overview of the territorial history from the Bronze Age through Ancient Rome. The next section displays materials from the Pugiano excavation, ceramic and bronze artifacts from the Hellenic tomb at the “La Ripa” settlement dating to the late archaic period, burial goods from the Hellenic tomb at Poggio Palloro, and funerary urns created locally. The development of kitchen and dining sets is recounted through a display of ceramic and glass objects which also illustrate the diverse techniques used over the centuries.
