The Archaeological Museum of Albano is housed in the neoclassical building of Villa Ferraioli. Twenty-three rooms on three floors, archaeological finds dating back to different historical periods, ranging from a more recent Middle Ages, up to the very ancient Paleolithic. Very important are the findings of the Paleolithic fauna, dating back to the Stone Age (300,000 - 30,000 years ago). Subsequently, the rooms document the presence of numerous imperial villas in the area such as the villa of Cavallacci, in which the marble head of Tiberio Gemello was found, or the villa of Pompeo Magno, who returned several marble finds of great value, and for finish the villa near Cancelliera, the place of origin of the head of the statue of Faustina Maggiore. To complete the visit, all that remains is to enjoy the collection of ancient graphics, with authors ranging from the 17th to the 20th century, with a very high number of works by Giovan Battista Piranesi.
