Marsciano - Museo Dinamico del Laterizio e delle Terrecotte



Barycentre of a spread out exhibition on the whole area around the City of Marsciano, the Dynamic Museum of Brick and Terracotta is the very identity of this territory, historically and inextricably linked to this important production as evidenced by the extensive use of brick in the construction of Marsciano itself.
It is therefore no coincidence that the Museum is housed here, in the fourteenth century Palazzo Pietromarchi, noble residence completely restored and inaugurated in March 2004.
'Dynamic' by vocation, the museum is not only a venue of important relics and artefacts, but the center of cultural events and activities by the dual role: that of teaching and scientific research, aimed at recovery and preservation of ancient techniques and crafts, and the tourist one, which aims to attract visitors from outside the region. Numerous exhibitions and scientific conferences are held here.
On the first and second floors of the building is different nuclei of exposure: the bricks made in an artisanal or industrial way, an Etruscan grave goods, the Etruscan and Roman pottery, architectural terracotta, glazed terracotta and a series of large jars.
In the exhibition, panels along the route show the historical characterization of the kilns and products, documentation, archival and production sites. The educational section of terracotta documents the potter's house with all stages of production, from raw materials to finished object, accompanied by reproductions of old prints, utensils and tools.
