  • This museum really amazed me because of the quantity and quality of its pottery: Bronze Age, Etrurian, Roman, Paleo-Christian, etc. The first room seems to be always dedicated to a small exhibition that mixes ancient artworks and modern designs. When I visited, it displayed glassware side-by-side with locally produced jewellery. The remainder halls mostly exhibit pottery. Quality ranges from basic red pottery and jars meant for food preservation to fine red-on-black and black-on-red figures pertaining to different ages. Most of it comes from several burials dug in the location of the necropolis of yore. The lapidarium shall not be overlooked. It does not compare with that of Aquileia in terms of size, however it stands out because of the clarity the reported inscriptions. Finally, there is a Gaul (Celtic) chariot, together with the skeletons of some horses, which is complemented by wall-paintings by Fedele, possibly a local (?) artist. Although some descriptions and labels are not excessively deep, the best aid to the understanding of archaeological findings is given by several maps, which are indeed accurate in their portrayal of the settlements and the European regions to which Adria was connected. Some explanatory videos are also present. Kudos to the staff and the curators for the hard work.
  • Brilliant collection and display of Roman and Etruscan life. All signage was in Italian but the English speaking guide we had was a born narator and passionate about his job
