Ancient Delta Museum

In Antico Ospedale degli Infermi is the new Ancient Delta Museum, which today houses the entire cargo of a Roman ship discovered near Comacchio
Ancient Delta Museum

The new Ancient Delta Museum illustrates the centuries-long evolution of the area and of the human settlements typical of the ancient Po Delta.

It is organized into sections corresponding to different historical periods, ranging from the earliest traces of civilizations up to the classical Age. The section dedicated to the Etruscan city of Spina is particularly noteworthy, containing objects from the built-up area as well as
rich grave goods found in its tombs.

The precious cargo of Comacchio’s Roman ship has been transferred in the museum. Dating from the early years of the Empire (late 1st century. B.C.), this veritable marine Pompeii was rediscovered in 1981.
