Museum of the Territory

The most ancient archaeological finds concerning Riccione and the nearby area from prehistory to Roman times, are collected in this interesting and didactic exposition.

From the first introductory stage displaying the origin and evolution of life on the Earth, the visitor moves to the section representing the geological structure of the area with a rich collection of fossils, rocks and minerals.

The ancient environment of the low Conca valley, populated during the Palaeolithic period, has been accurately portrayed through the exposition of flint wares and ceramics testifying the beginning of the first agricultural and farming settlements

Iron objects are from the surrounding area and are dated from the Aeneolithic to the Iron Age.
The last section is entirely dedicated to the Roman colonization and shows items found in some old farms of the region and along the consular Via Flaminia.
