The ancient aspects of Basilicata emerge from the finds kept in the Archaeological Museum. Here are traces of history of the period between the Paleolithic Age and the Roman period.

These finds come from several zones of the region, in particular from the Metaponto area, and are mostly composed by bronze objects, little statues, Greek and Latin inscriptions, ceramics and weapons.

Particularly relevant are the bronze Corinthian elm, found in 1291 in Vaglio, little statues found in Monticchio and some items in terracotta found around Metaponto.

Nowadays the museum hosts important expositions that attract the attention of those who love art. In particular, there have been expositions about Carlo Levi, Giorgio De Chirico and, lately, Carrà, that have conferred a fresh impulse to the ‘culture pole’.

It was created to promote and improve the knowledge of works representing a common heritage for personal growth and enrichment.
