Giuseppe Scarabelli

Archaeological and Naturalistic Museum

Located in the convent of San Domenico, the museum was founded in 1857 based on research conducted by geologist and palaeontologist, Giuseppe Scarabelli, and grew thanks to private donations.

A wonderful example of a nineteenth century museum, it houses sections dedicated to prehistoric archaeology with findings from Palaeolithic sites and from the Bronze Age, to geology with a rich selection of rocks, minerals, fossils and other collections and finally a section dedicated to nature.
