On Tuesday 18 May the National Archaeological Museum of Cagliari will reopen to the public !!!
From Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 20:00, the Archaeological Museum and the National Gallery will be open to visitors again.
In recent weeks in the National Gallery we have set up two showcases dedicated to reliquaries.
In traditional Sardinian jewelry, reliquaries are small silver cases protected by two glasses created by local goldsmiths. The most frequent are the round or oval geometric ones, but there are also several examples modeled in the shape of a heart and worked with filigree decorations. They often contain fragments of fabric, generally brocades, removed from discarded clothes that belonged to simulacra of the mannequin type (called in Sardinia a cannuga) considered miraculous, or printed and blessed images.
In the section dedicated to the great figures of Sardinian archeology on the second floor of the Archaeological Museum, the portrait of Filippo Vivanet, architect and engineer who directed the Royal Archaeological Museum of Cagliari since 1878, is now exhibited.
You will also find the recently set up section of the Archaeological Museum, dedicated to glass from the Roman age, in which ointments, jugs, urns, cups and glasses from Cornus, Porto Torres and other places in Sardinia are exhibited.
These and other news await you at the Museum !!!
