This is in the Museum’s third room and it focuses on the sea.
The really evocative setting of this room hosts artifacts recovered underwater in Baratti, such as Etruscans and Roman amphoras, stone and lead anchor stocks and a lava-rock grinding stone.
The current setting is designed by architects Agostino Carpo and Erica Foggi.
