The most significant evidence of Riccione and its territory from the Prehistory to the Roman Age are preserved in this Museum. The exhibition is suitable for educational purposes and excellently arranged. The first section, complete with important fossil remains, presents the origins and evolution of life on the Earth. Then the geological structure of the territory is illustrated in all its paleontologic and petrographic aspects together with a wide range of fossil, rock and mineral remains. The reconstruction of an ancient Paleolithic environment of the Conca low valley is also worth looking at, while the first ceramics and flint artifacts document the appearance of the first sedentary settlements characterized by an agricultural and pastoral economy. The exhibition continues with the Metal age, from the copper of the Aeneolithic period to the Iron age through the various phases of the Bronze age, represented by findings brought to light in local villages. The last section is completely dedicated to the Roman conquest and civilization with findings from various farms of the territory and along the consular road Flaminia.
