Cervia Ritrovata: la scoperta della città antica e del suo territorio

MUSA reopens its doors to visitors with the exhibition “Cervia Ritrovata: La scoperta della città antica e del suo territorio(Cervia Refound: The rediscovery of the ancient town and its territory”).

This itinerary illustrates, through images and storytelling, images and story, the archaeological investigation in the area of Old Cervia, in the middle of the salt pans, in September and October 2020. In particular, a series of panels narrates the excavation activities in the area of the salt pans that, until 1698, hosted the ancient salt town, before it was relocated to the sea.

The images, shots taken by the MUSA photography group (a group of photographers set up within the museum), guide the visitor’s eyes to the discovery of the attentive investigation and excavation of the area where the ancient town stood, while the account of the archaeologists offers an overview of the activities carried out bringing them to the attention of the public.

The itinerary, begun in 2019, sees the collaboration of the University of Bologna – Department of History, Culture and Civilisation, of the Superintendence of Archaeological, Fine Arts and Landscape for the provinces of Ravenna, Forli-Cesena and Rimini; of the Town of Cervia, of the Gruppo Culturale Civiltà Salinara and MUSA.


The archaeologists who worked on the field will talk about the project – “Progetto Cervia Vecchia Ficocle” – and the activities carried out, illustrated also in the photos on display. They will illustrate the fascinating investigation route, explaining the techniques and methods used in this “journey to discover the remains of the ancient town”. First appointment is on Friday 19 February.
