Archaeological Museum

Inaugurated in 2007, the Archeological Museum collects a series of artifacts found in Brescello between the 18th and the 19th century.

The town was of great historical importance, being a Roman city of considerable importance, which controlled the traffic along the Po river. The visit begins with the small necropolis of Brixellum, with original steles and a copy of a part of the monument of the Concordi family. A second part is dedicated to Roman houses, where you can admire mosaic floors and reconstructions of a typical domus and insula. An extensive documentation is dedicated to the different uses and models of amphorae, created with the Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Emilia-Romagna.
