On the Ground Floor, Rooms XVI-XVIII, to the left of the entrance, contain complexes of materials which come from the archaeological research conducted at Milazzo during the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the exact recontructions, according to the original stratigraphy, of a stretch of the necropolis of the “predio Caravello” (Room: XVI), of burials with curled up skeletons in large jars (Fig.4), dating to the XIV century B.C. (Aeolian "Culture of the Milazzese" ), as well as of the Protovillanoviana necropolis of the “Isthmus” (Room: XVII), of cremations in urns of a Hand-made bournished ware with the opening closed with a bowl (Fig.5), dating back to the XII century B.C. (final phase of the Aeolian Ausonio I).
To the archaic Greek necropolis of Milazzo, that developed in the area of the Isthmus, is dedicated Room XVIII. It features a necropolis that exclusively cremated, of which are displayed the large jars that held the ashes, that is hydriae of the Euboic tradition, decorated with strips (Fig.6); pots (Fig.7); “protoattiche”, “chiote”, Punic, Etruscan amphorae, (Fig.8) as well as a selection of grave goods that can be chronologically placed between end VII and first quarter VI century B.C. (Fig.9).
In Room XIX, to the right of the entrance, is a reconstruction of an excavated trench of the necropolis of Piazza Monfalcone of Lipari.
It is a necropolis of mixed rites, of burials in huge jars and of cremations in “situle” (bucket-shaped pots), dating back to the Late Bronze Age (Initial phase of the Ausonio II -beginning XII century B.C.-) that, it seems from similar reconstructions, constitutes one of the didactic peculiarities of the Archaeological Museum of Lipari (Fig.10).
Room XX (Fig.11) contains an admired selection of sarcophagi in stone and in terracotta; jars used as containers to hold grave goods or as containers destined for cremation; inscribed funerary stelai, thus constituting a true and proper introductory room to the visit to the Middle and Upper Floors of the Section, dedicated to grave goods, with chronological continuity, coming from the Greek and Roman necropolis of Lipari.
Room XXVII, is dedicated to Marine Archaeology that constitutes, for the wealth of the materials it contains, a true and proper “Section” within itself.
This room contains the cargo of ships wrecked in stretches of very dangerous seas, such as the shallows of Capistello, at Lipari, and of Capo Graziano, at Filicudi, and the group of rocks, known as the “Formiche” of Panarea, as well as materials of various periods coming from port dumpings at docks which no longer exist.
