Terracotta figures and pots decorated in mythical scenes give an insight in early life in Magna Graecia. 7th - 3th BC ceramics and Greek vases imported from Africa and Corinth

Small museum - and free (if you sign the visitors' book). Right in the middle of town. Only four rooms but packed with a surprising collection of some 2000 (mostly) classical antiquities - especially some beautiful vases (kraters). All captions only in Italian but the...More

This museum was founded as a private collection. It is free and includes very interesting items. We couldn't find a guide who knew English but there is a good booklet in English. The Italian pronounced its name : YATTA

Antiquities perfectly preserved, like none others we've seen before. The colors, materials, importance of the objects were very impressive. Well explained by our docent.

We went here having seen a piece about it on TV. The place is amazing. Four rooms with display cases full of artifacts collected by a member of the Jatta family. It's free and you get a lovely booklet in English

If you are in the area of Ruvo you must go to this tiny, but amazing museum. The exhibits are only displayed over four rooms but they are truly wonderful. In addition to the free admission, the museum provides a high quality,free (!), colour booklet....More

A comprehensive collection of - amazingly - local finds from the 18th century, an age when tomb robbing, encouraged by antique-hunters was rife. The Jatta brothers saved many ancient masterpices from oblivion, and they are displayed still as aesthetic items, with no attempt at museum...More
