"Università del Salento, Complesso Studium 2000, Lecce
"The Historical-Archaeological Museum (MUSA) has been created as part of the Coordinated Project (IN20) of the Universities of Catania and Lecce. It has been funded by both the Italian Ministry of Universities and Scientific Research (MIUR) and by the European Union (EU), within the framework of P.O.N. 1994/1999 and 2000/2006. MUSA is an exhibition centre designed for the valorisation, educational fruition and dissemination of research conducted by the historians and archaeologists of the University of Salento over the last few decades. The exhibition aims at retracing the most important stages in historical and archaeological inquiry. At the same time, it is meant to deliver an up-to-date view of the most promising future developments (from prehistory to the Middle Ages, from Salento to the Mediterranean Near East), as well as of the available resources in terms of competence, instruments and laboratory equipment.
