The Museum

The Civico Museo Archeologico e della Città di Savona, opened in 1990 in the Fortress on the Priamàr hill, mainly exhibits materials from the archaeological research carried out by the International Institute of Ligurian Studies (in collaboration with the Archaeological Superintendency and the Municipality) since the mid-1950s, in the Priamàr itself and the area near it. The Museum is located inside the Palazzo della Loggia; the museum’s itinerary, which has ceramics as its leitmotif, is developed on two floors and illustrates the main excavation sites carried out so far in the Savona area.
