Description

The book retraces the history of the Archeological Civic Museum of Fiesole, on the occasion of the centenary of its creation. Its story, anyway, is much longer than a century: if the transfer of archaeological materials into the new location dates back to 1914, the Museum was officially established in 1878 in order collect the great amount of relics coming from the Roman Forum, after the excavations conducted from the early Nineteenth century. The history of the museum is therefore necessarily intertwined with that of the ancient city of Fiesole, whose archaeological zone covers three hectares, now summarized in the museum rooms, together with exhibits from all over the world. Thanks to Marco De Marco and to the contributions of Carlo Salvianti and Mario Cantini, this volume offers an overall view of this collection of precious treasures (Etruscan votive bronzes, funerary steles, marble friezes and sculptures from the theater and the thermal baths, terracotta antefixes, bronze statues...), reconstructing at the same time the remains of a buried city."show more
