In Cervia - Between Salt and Archeology


On Monday 7 June at 9.00pm the free guided tour of the museum and the archaeological room of the MUSA, Cervia salt museum.

The salt workers of the Civiltà Salinara cultural group will welcome visitors and lead them through the history of salt and the city. Together with them, Dr. Giovanna Montevecchi, historian and archaeologist friend of the museum, will enrich the visit by illustrating the archaeological section of the museum which contains the treasures of the past of the city of salt.

The finds found in the area that are now on display at MUSA will be reviewed. From the finds of the early medieval ship found in Savio in 1956, to the fragment of a funerary monument with the head of a medusa found in the mid-1950s in the Montaletto area and delivered to MUSA by the children of the "Buonarroti" elementary school after the careful restoration carried out by Supervision. Also on display at the museum are the pilgrim cruets found in the surroundings of the Pieve di Pisignano and the skilful compositions of the mosaic carpets of the church of San Martino prope litus maris found in 1989 in the salt pans area. To complete the explanatory picture of local history, displayed in the windows, there are also ceramic and glass materials from the old Cervia.

The guided tour, included in the price of the admission ticket, takes visitors on a journey through time, in the company of experts, in search of the origins of the city of Cervia, its evolution into the city of salt, its transfer to the sea, its vicissitudes dictated by the wealth that salt has represented for centuries in the city, until it reaches today's tourist reality.

 

MUSA opening hours: every evening, until 6 June from 20.30 to 22.30 and from 7 June from 20.30 to 23.30

Entrance Ticket: € 2
