Palazzo Ducale of Tricarico

Musei Archeologici

Since March 2001, the halls of the Palazzo Ducale of Tricarico (ducal palace) have housed a significant collection of archaeological finds that testify to the important role as a strategic point in the road system, played by the Medio Basento area since the Archaic period. Rocco Scotellaro, was a famous poet to whom a documentation centre, set up in the former monumental complex of St. Francis of Assisi, is dedicated. In his homeland, strong and evocative evidence to the prolonged Arab presence can be found in the Saracena and Rabatana districts, intricate networks of city walls, terraced gardens, and towers.


Operative Centre of Maratea

Musei Archeologici

The Centre, a branch of the Office for the Protection of Architectural, Natural and Artistic and Heritages of Basilicata, organises cultural events and exhibitions in the “Garden of the Arts” of the Convento dei Cappuccini. It also carries out actions on landscape protection and school educational activities. The first floor of Palazzo De Lieto, belonging to the Polo Museale of Basilicata, houses the Angelo Brando Pinacoteca.
The gallery is named after a painter from Maratea, one of the most interesting exponents of the figurative arts panorama
in the early 20th century. On the ground floor, there is an event and exhibition venue, where ancient amphorae and reproductions of objects found in the Maratea sea are temporarily displayed. The palace opens in summer and, temporarily only, at other times of the year for specific events.
