MUSEO DELL'ABRUZZO BIZANTINO ED ALTO MEDIOEVO
Where VILLA SELGAROLI, Crecchio (Chieti)
The Museum of Byzantine and Medieval Abruzzo was instituted in 1995 and set in the rooms of De Riseis Ducal Palace in Crecchio. Most of the material on display comes from an archaeological site in Casino Vezzani Vassarella, in the surroundings of Crecchio, dug between 1988 and 1991 and from Fraracci Collection of Etruscan antiquities, which includes more than six hundred items from the Villanovan Culture to the age of Roman Empire. Among the most remarkable pieces on exhibition there are wooden finds influenced by Copt art, precious-stone jewels and an Ostrogothic helmet, Etruscan pottery and a section reserved to typical costumes.
