Museo di Stato
State museum at Titano Square
Situated at the Piazza del Titano, the state museum Museo di Stato can be found in the time-honoured Palazzo Pergami - Belluzzi with approx. 5,000 exhibits, some of which cover the history and legend of the republic of San Marino, and the founder of the country. The archaeological department contains evidence going back into the Neolithic Age. Among the excavations and bestowments is cultural evidence of the Egyptians, Etruscans, Romans, Greeks, and the Apulians. The votive bronzes of the “Tanaccia” and the gold fibula of Domagnano carry special meaning. Both exhibits were part of the burial equipment of an Ostrogoth princess buried around 500 AD. The art gallery includes works by Michele Gambono, Baccio Bandinelli, Tiburzio Passerotti, and Bernardo Strozzi. Another exhibit highlights a collection of San Marinese coins and medals from 1864 to 1937.
