Reggio Calabria: National Archaeological Museum (Riace Bronzes) (EXPO AND REGIONS)

The Museo Nazionale di Reggio Calabria is one of Italy's most prestigious Archaeological Museums, hosting many important testimonies to the ancient colonies of Magna Graecia in Calabria. Located at Piazza De Nava in the city center, the building housing the Museum is the architectural work of Marcello Piacentini, prominent architect during the Fascist period. The interior has undergone several transformations, the most important of which took place in the early 1980s, so as to offer greater visibility to the Riace Bronzes, exceptional ancient Greek sculpture found (mostly intact) off the coast in 1972.
