The Museum

The settlement of Saepinum probably originated in the 4th century BC as vicus, a residential site located at the meeting point between two ancient transhumance routes. In the Augustan period (31 BC - 14 AD) the most important buildings (forum, basilica, macellum, spa) were built or restored. After the Greek-Gothic war (535-553 AD) the urban area was radically transformed, with the abandonment of many inhabited areas and the use of some of them as burial grounds. Starting from the XVIII century the rural buildings are still visible and still visible in topographical continuity with the Roman ones. One of these, built on the semi-circular foundations of the theater, currently houses the Museum of the city and the territory. The collection, exhibited in four rooms, collects finds from the archaeological area of Saepinum, the necropolis and the territory, in chronological sequence from Prehistory to the Middle Ages. In some cases, the materials are divided into thematic groupings. The first room is dedicated to the lithic finds of the Paleolithic, while the second and third tell the daily lifestyle, the productive, commercial and entrepreneurial activities of the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The fourth room exhibits the materials of the Lombard tombs (7th century) and a selection of pottery from the 13th and 14th centuries.
