  • I visited the archaeological museum in the late morning of August 26, Ribezzo just before closing time. However the time didn't stop me appreciate this Museum, which is located next to the Cathedral of Brindisi and housed in a historic mansion. The Museum was sparsely populated and this has encouraged my visit, which aims to identify those that are the highlights of a Museum: its capital works, objects that we can not see. The collections are displayed over several floors, from the basement to the last, not strictly chronological but basically respectful of the Goddess that is intended to make, namely the cultural evolution of this generous and rich part of Italy, from civilization Roman culturizzazione mediated by indigenous dei messapi indispensable to the graft of Greek civilization. In the basement, also used as meeting room-so I understand-are arranged around Roman statues at full length and very good quality; to climb, finds own local civilization represented by geometric decoration and messapica ware typical everyday artefacts. Together, some attic vases paintings. These, I imagined constitute the true core of the Museum, are actually very small in number but I have to say that at least a few of them are of the highest artistic quality. To proceed in successive plans, the lion's share is supported by the Roman world and his legacy, partly merged with the previous messapic substrate-Hellenic, partly true. Some marble busts are of great interest, while curious and interesting is the reconstruction of a Roman ship, with its load of amphorae and of objects needed to navigate: a nice way of teaching using original objects and tickling visitor pattern, which is carried away in the hypothetical sea of 2,000 years ago as a Ulysses in the Imperial age. Some mosaic floors were ripped from sites originated and hospitalized here, but I haven't seen masterpieces in this regard. The things that I was surprised and amazed were the vast collection of coins, rare and interesting, and-for me-the exceptional presence of bronze artifacts recovered from ancient wrecks off the port of Brindisi. It must be said that the bronzes of classical antiquity are among the rarest and most precious artifacts that you can find in museums around the world as material bronze, over the centuries, was often melted to make cannons or for new artistic creations, whereby the survival of classical statues in bronze is absolutely outstanding and almost always due to incidental findings in wrecks or-as for the Riace bronzes or satyr of Mazara del Vallo-sunk in the sands of the sea and kept for centuries. The Museum of Brindisi has a rare collection of more or less complete busts of bronze age mostly Roman and scattered sculptures parts (arms, legs, shields) belonging to statues-at least for now-not yet discovered. Are fine creations don't miss seeing, even for apprezarne the stylistic preciosity and accuracy in the use of materials (glass paste for eyes, for example). The Museum, in the small courtyard, has a few other finds of Roman tombstones and sarcophagi and beyond. Overall the property is well kept and the arrangement of objects is accurate as far as partial. Partial in the sense that I was expecting a panorama is no longer complete, but much more fed--not as Taranto-honestly not so tight at least as far as the Greek era, that figure because the grains of salt in a soup ... To see anyway.
