MUSAS - Museo Storico Archeologico di Santarcangelo

in detail


Pottery activities were developed at Santarcangelo that were essentially at the services of agriculture, for which containers were produced for perishable products, no less important for civil settlements for which it provided all types of building materials. The kiln was the complex of structures and activities necessary for the manufacture of items in terracotta. Six roman kilns were found in Santarcangelo: four near to the city centre, two in Santo Marino of Poggio Berni and in Sant'Ermete. From the I century b.C. to  the VI century a.C. the kilns worked without taking a break.


Giovanni Vincenzo Antonio Ganganelli has always been considered one of the town's glories. He was born in Santarcangelo in 1705, he became Minor Conventual monk in 1723, cardinal in 1759, Pope from 1769 to 1774 with the name Clemente XIV. He gave to the monastery of Conventual Minors in Santarcangelo precious vestments and some liturgical objects that are exhibited in the XVIII century room. Moreover in the same place there are two portraits: one is about Ganganelli's cardinalship painted by an unknown painter dated from 1759 to 1769. The other is about Clemente's papacy painted in 1770 by a portraitist.
