I Love Ustica

Archaeological Museum


Museo Archeologico UsticaThe Archaeological Museum of Ustica , dedicated to Father Carmelo Seminara, a pioneer and initiator of archeology on the island, is a must-see for history lovers.
Inside the rooms of this museum, you can see/observe remains of the Middle Bronze Age (1400-1200 BC), household goods, obsidian tools and jewelry of various materials, all dating back to the ancient times of human history.
The materials preserved in the museum are all from the ancient prehistoric settlement Village of the Faraglioni, which was suddenly abandoned during the 12th century BC following the occurrence of natural disasters.

A section of the museum contains artifacts dating back to the Hellenistic and Roman ages, related to the second phase of the occupation of Ustica.

The location of the museum is also symbolic. In fact it is located in the spaces of "Il Fosso (literally, "The Pit"), which was used as a place of imprisonment during the Bourbon period, and subsequently as a place of confinement for the anti-fascist militants. Now this place has been completely returned to the island and to its citizens.

The Archaeological Museum is the right place for immerse yourself in the poetry of the oldest human history, and discover a fascinating past.

The museum is open to the public in August: every day from 18.00 to 21.00
