Civic Archaeological Museum of the City of Vercelli “Luigi Bruzza” – Vercelli

The Civic Archaeological Museum of the City of Vercelli, named after the Barnabite Father Luigi Bruzza, an illustrious scholar who dedicated himself to the history and archaeology of Vercelli in the 19th century, displays an archaeological collection of over six hundred findings from stratigraphic investigations conducted in the city over the last thirty years, supplemented by infographics and multimedia installations. The exhibition begins with artefacts illustrating the pre-Roman occupation of the territory, inhabited by the Libui, a Celtic-speaking population that had merged with native Ligures. This is followed by the stages characterising the transformations that occurred with the entry into the Roman orbit, starting from the 2nd century BC, concerning material culture, urban planning and private dwellings, funeral and religious rituals and, finally, the small and large scale economy, ending with the crisis and the profound changes that occurred in Late Antiquity. Artefacts that are often intact, placed in their original context of discovery, individual flashbacks of a city that has much to tell.
