ita Italian version

The museum building stands on the great rock known as Lipari Castle, a massive volcanic formation and a natural fortification. The site has been continuously inhabited since prehistoric times. It was the acropolis of the Greek colony of Lipàra and of the Roman town, and later the urban centre of medieval, Renaissance and baroque Lipari, until the early 18th c. The Castle area preserves considerable traces of its rich historic heritage (see map) that may be seen in various parts of the museum.

 

 

The museum is housed in several buildings located in the Castle area, some of which are of great historic and artistic importance.
The Volcanological Section is in a 15th c. building, while the Prehistoric Section is in the Bishop's Palace (18th c.).
 
The Museum illustrates the history and the characteristics of the presence of man in the Aeolian Archipelago from the last centuries of the 5th millennium BC to the medieval period.
 
The collections originated from archaeological excavations conducted by the Soprintendenze dei Beni Culturali e Ambientali of Messina and Syracuse in the Aeolian Archipelago and in Milazzo. Some items discovered before 1945 come from the Archaeological Museums of Palermo and Syracuse.
 
The display shows the relationship between the items and their place of origin by means of reconstructions of large areas of the excavations, together with stratigraphies.
The visit of the museum and the monumental and archaeological sections in the Castle area is facilitated and guided by traditional explanatory methods together with interactive computer systems.
