The Museum - inside the Palazzo della Partecipanza - contains the archaeological objects discovered within the network of the “ centuriazione ”, the ancient land-division system set by the Romans.
The findings date back to the Paleolithic period (from three villages where the predominant economic activities are agriculture and sheep-farming is from the 13th century b.c.), the Iron Age (from the Villanovian necropolis and settlement of Castenaso), and finally, the Roman period: fragments of tableware and kitchen pottery, and large containers for cereal, oil and wine.
On May 21st 2011, the museum was entitled to Elsa Silvestri, a scholar and researcher in the conservation and enhancement of the environmental and archaeological heritage, who strongly supported the creation of the museum in 1982.
