Visit to Museum - Pre-Historic Section - Bronze Age - -

The Bronze Age (II millenium B.C. - X century B.C.), period in which Lipari establishes intense commercial relationships with the Aegean world and is again a nodal point of the routes that lead to metal mines present in Italy and in North-western Europe, is documented in its cronological and cultural evolution:
FIG. 12 - Capo Graziano style potteryThe First Bronze Age (first half II millenium B.C.), is documented by the "Culture of Capo Graziano"  (from the name of a headland of the island of Filicudi), with a production of pottery closely linked to Protoelladic and the initial Mesoelladic cultures of Continental Greece
(Fig.12.);
FIG. 13 - Milazzese style potteryThe Middle Bronze Age (end XV-first half XIII century B.C.), is documented by the "Culture of the Milazzese" (from the name of a headland on of the island of Panarea), with productions of potteries resembling those of Sicily of the "Culture of Thapsos", thus suggesting that the Aeolians were conquered by people coming, once again, from Sicily
(Fig.13).
In Room VI we conclude the visit to the Top Floor of the building that contains the Pre-historic Section and we come to the Ground Floor, Rooms VII - X that document the Late Bronze Age and the Final Bronze Age, as well as the initial moment of the foundation of the Greek colony
.
The Late Bronze Age (second half XIII - end XII century B.C.), documented by the "Culture of FIG. 14 - Cups with superimposed design on the handles, typical of the late-Apennine peninsularAusonio I", with all new pottery types, modelled on those of the Late-Appennine from the Italian peninsular from which, probably came the people who, at this time, would have conquered the island. In the pottery of this culture are shapes extend above the handles of a large bowls: these include shapes “with a single or double cylinder”, “with large horns”,  “with axe”, “with opposing spirals”.
(Fig.14).
FIG. 15 - Ausonian II potteryThe Final Bronze Age (XI - X century B.C.), is documented by the "Culture of the Ausonio II", with the production of handmade bournished ware that is decorated with ashlars and grooves, ascribable to the "Protovillanoviana Culture" of the Italian peninsula (Fig.15).
