AMPHORAE MUSEUM

 

The peculiarity of the Museum is that it collects all the various kind of amphorae, different in typology and in chronology, that have been salvaged along the whole Mediterranean Sea from the trawlers of San Benedetto marine, that during fifties and sixties were usual to go fishing along Aegean, Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Adriatic Sea.
The collections is a unique one in Italy: it collects submarine findings coming from different periods and cultures (Punic, Greek, Roman and Phoenician amphorae).

The staging of the Museum was conceived in order to reconcile both scientific purposes and popular ones; every step of the exhibition (trades, handiworks, amphorae, naval architecture and submarine researches) is illustrated by didactic panels and concise legends.
