The present exhibition results from the different contributions given by the various participants to the excavation.

Within the exhibition path, we have tried to explain a little part of the complexity of the excavation and the findings. So, we have both used multimedia systems (hypertexts and timelines), and preserved the complexity of subsequent restoration of the findings ( as shown in some showcases).

The greatest difficulty has been to place the findings within showcases, once they were removed from their own original context. Hence, we have tried to give, in the exhibition, the idea of how these fragments have been recovered scattered all around.

At the same time, we have tried to suggest the life of these found objects, their use and, particularly, the extraordinary suggestive experience of the discovery.
