A Family Who Discovered 2,500 Years

of History Inside Their Own Home

Light Refreshments Will Be Served

The Faggiano Museum (Museo Archeologico Faggiano) in Lecce, Italy evolved over a 7-year excavation project when Luciano Faggiano broke through a floor in his home to repair a sewer pipe. As the work began the family unexpectedly discovered archeological evidence containing a time span of 2,500 years. The excavation work exposed tombs, a granary, cisterns, Templar frescos and underground escapes. There are more than 5,000 archeological finds all in one house. The Faggiano family financed this entirely and worked under the supervision of the Archeological Superintendent of Taranto to unearth these layers of civilization. In 2008, they opened it as a private museum. Andrea, Davide and Marco will tell us their story with words and images and how their determination and spirit made this a gem of archeological history.
