Masterpieces of the hall

The hall

The section, inaugurated in December 2017, is dedicated to the exhibition of some Roman sarcophagi, until now largely preserved in the museum's storerooms.

The route presents precious artefacts decorated with figures referring to the world of myth: these were often used to describe the different qualities of the deceased, or more generally to allude to the happiness of the afterlife through the evocation of a serene and happy world.
