The new Archaeological Museum (inaugurated in 2009) is located in the deconsecrated Basilica of San Lorenzo and in the annexed 15th century Cappella Meli. The Romanesque church of San Lorenzo stands on the ruins of an older church, dated to the tenth century, built in turn on the area of an early Christian funerary building and a necropolis of Roman Republican age: the museum is therefore itself an archaeological site , whose remains are still largely visible.
