Civic Archaeological Museum of Nepi

Museo Civico in Nepi

The Civic Museum of Nepi makes use of a modern and fascinating display system that through the archaeological finds illustrates the historical evolution of the city and its territory starting from the prehistoric age up to the Renaissance.

The most important part of the civic collection, which makes the museum structure unique among the civic museums of Lazio, is made up of materials from the Faliscan necropolis (7th - 3rd century BC) that surround the town.

Among these, the "necropolis of Sante Grotte" is the one that has returned the most significant archaeological finds. Some excavation campaigns, carried out between 2003 and 2004 have, in fact, allowed the exceptional discovery of some still intact chamber tombs and burials in the pit reserved for children. Inside the chamber tombs rich grave goods were found characterized by the presence of Greek-made ceramics, bronze objects and personal ornaments in gold and silver.

The fascination of these discoveries can be relived by the visitor through a video that documents the most evocative phases of the excavation with sensational images.

The story of Nepi, however, has also left other important testimonies. In fact, alongside the extraordinary finds from the Faliscan period, it is possible to admire works such as a portrait of the emperor Augustus and a rare marble coat of arms of Lucrezia Borgia.
