The Archaeological Museum and the “Edilberto Rosa” Picture Gallery

The Archaeological Museum and the “Edilberto Rosa” Picture Gallery are, together with the Historical Archive and the Municipal Library, in the ex-Collegio Boccarini which was originally a Franciscan convent dated to the 14th-15th centuries with a cloister with a double loggia of the 17th century.
The archaeological collection thus provides a chronologically complete overview of the history of Amelia, which should be an integral part of any visitor’s tour of the town, where the widespread recycling of Roman-age and early mediaeval architectural elements, fragments of sculptures, epigraphs and sarcophagi, has turned the streets and alleyways of the historic centre into a sort of vast open-air museum. Excavations underneath grave goods (4th-1st centuries B.C.), number of bronze objects, including mirrors and banquet containers. A dog skeleton was found in the necropolis, it was buried near a tomb of a child.
The most important of these finds were the pieces of the remarkable bronze statue of the Roman military officer Nerone Claudio Druso known as Germanicus that were found in 1963. The statue stands some two metres high. He is dressed in full armour exhorting the troops. His breastplate is fine decorated.
