Archaeological Museum

THE MUSEUM

This museum is opened only at the weekend and on public holidays. Here one can find some archaeological artefacts discovered in Brescello from the end of the XIX century. The town was indeed an important Roman colony, which controlled the traffic on the route of the River Po during the Ist century BC until the Ist century AD.

 

THE VISIT

The visit to the museum starts with a display of objects related to a small Necropoli of Brixellum, with original stele and a plaster copy of a part of the Monument to the Concordi Family. The second part of the museum is dedicated to the Roman type of houses, with mosaic floors and the reconstruction of the inside of a typical “domus” and “insula”.

It is also possible to see an interesting documentation, realized by Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici dell’Emilia-Romagna, about the various usage and different models of amphora’s found in the village.
