The Classical Section spans three different levels in one of the 20th-century buildings that formed part of the fascist confinement camps, with an extension to the eastern section completed in the 1980s.
The ground floor (Rooms: XVI – XX, XXVII) is dedicated to finds coming from excavations carried out in the 1950s and 1960s at Milazzo; a display of sarcophagi and of epigraphs and of urns that introduce the grave goods of the Greek necropolis; as well as Marine Archeology.
The Middle Floor (Rooms: XXI – XXV) is dedicated to the great wealth of material documentation coming from the excavation of the vast necropolis of Lipari, that developed from IV century B.C. to the 252/251 (destruction of the Greek city by the Romans).
