Museo Archeologico Nazionale

Museum Ferrara, Italy

Visit Museo Archeologico Nazionale

The National Archaeological Museum of Ferrara is housed in Palazzo Costabili. The structure displays various artefacts from the excavations of the Etruscan city of Spina, which flourished between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC.

The exhibition itinerary follows a chronological criterion. Among the most valuable pieces are the symposium kits and the extraordinary collection of Attic red-figure ceramics (kraters, kylikes, amphorae, hydria). The paintings represent mythological scenes, produced by important Athenian artists of the time, and testify to the diffusion of Greek art in the Etruscan area. Other ceramics come from Magna Graecia, with a faster painting. Alongside objects of great wealth there are others of more common use such as plates and bowls, animal-shaped askoi, sets for playing dice, in bone and stone. Of Etruscan production are objects mainly in bronze, such as candlesticks, tripods, supports. Note the Upper Adriatic ceramics, produced locally when contacts with Greece ceased.
