The Francesco Savini Civic Archaeological Museum is located in the city of Teramo, in the historic center near the Cathedral. The Museum was opened in 1997 and exhibits works of archeology and artifacts from the late Renaissance. The Museum was dedicated to Francesco Savini, historian, paleographer and archaeologist originally from Teramo who devoted himself a lot to research in the Abruzzese and Teramo area. The Museum provides an exhibition itinerary on two floors in a chronological sense for a complete reading of the history of the territory. On the ground floor are the finds from the Roman period. In particular, many finds are evidence of the necropolis, the theater and the city amphitheater. Among all, the beautiful mosaic of the Lion and the effigy of Septimius Severus are worthy of note. The first floor houses the Roman and medieval ceramic production and the remains of Teramo Romanesque architecture. Among the works of great value are the statues from the Tortoreto nymphaeum: Calliope, Erato and Euterpe. The museum also houses a small Auditorium, a venue for concerts, book presentations, theatrical performances and seminars.
