Museo Archeologico di Colfiorito

Perugia - Foligno


The new museum, with significantly extended exhibition space, is the result of a partnership between the Comune of Foligno and the Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Umbria. The exhibits were re-installed in August 2001 in Colfiorito, in one of the "Casermette" of the former internment came, which the Comune of Foligno renovated and equipped with all the safety guarantees required for conserving and enjoying the works of art. The new larger site (1,200 square metres of exhibition space over three floors) has allowed for an increase in the collection, which now numbers approximately 1,400 archaeological exhibits. These document the Plestine civilisation from the origins of Romanisation and bear witness to the position of Plestia in the wider network of cultural exchanges between Etruria, Magna Graecia and Greece. The area is also particularly unusual from an environmental perspective due to its location in the Colfiorito Regional Park, a wetland area protected by the Ramsar Convention thanks to the recent establishment of the Colfiorito Park Nature Museum.
