Named after the scholar Alvaro Tracchi from Valdarno, the new archaeological section inaugurated in April 2016, completes the paleontological tour by deepening the territorial anthropization.
The exhibition, which maintains the museum’s original showcase, and some multimedia equipment are located in two rooms, from which future generations can undertake, through the study of their past, their journey to the future.
The ceramic materials, the true ‘fossil guide’ of the section, accompany the visitor in the discovery of the most representative productions of Valdarno – from bucchero to terra sigillata – and places where objects have taken shape and have been used.
The new section, also, demonstrates how the secular tradition of the Academy as a focus of conservation and valorisation of the cultural heritage of the territory continues today.
The collections are nearly exclusively owned by the State and are granted as safekeeping by the Superintendence of Archaeology in Tuscany, and with their collaboration the exhibits have been set up.
