Visite guidate a Musa

A closer look at the archaeological section

To enrich the visit, the museum's archaeology section, opened in 2012, contains treasures from the past of the city of salt.

Finds discovered in the area, now on display in MUSA, are reviewed.
From the artefacts of an early medieval ship found in Savio in 1956 to the fragment of a jellyfish head funeral monument found in the mid-1950s in the Montaletto area and consigned to MUSA by the children of the ‘Buonarroti’ primary school after careful restoration by the Superintendency.

Also on display at the museum are the pilgrim's cruets found around the Pieve di Pisignano and the skilful compositions of coloured marbles from the mosaic carpets of the Church of San Martino prope litus maris found in 1989 in the area of the salt pans.

Also on display in the showcases is ceramic and glass material from Cervia Vecchia to complete the picture of local history.

With the archaeological excavations of the last few years, the historical research of Cervia's origins continues in order to learn more about its development as a salt town, its move to the sea, the vicissitudes due to the wealth that salt represented for centuries up to its evolution into a tourist resort.

The guided tour takes visitors on a journey through time, in the company of experts.
