Cividale del Friuli

National Archaeological Museum of Cividale del Friuli

It showcases artifacts from the Roman, Early Christian, High Medieval, Romanesque, and Gothic periods, and items from the Lombard era, such as the highly rare private collection of 56 Lombard gold coins, the second largest and most significant collection in the world.

The National Archaeological Museum of Cividale del Friuli, founded in 1817, today is housed in the Palazzo dei Provveditori Veneti, built in the 16th century according to the design of Andrea Palladio.

The Archaeological Museum of Cividale was opened in 1990. It is on two floors and features precious finds of the Roman, early-Christian, early-medieval, Romanesque and Gothic ages.

The ground floor houses the stone section, the epigraphic section and the mosaic section, as well as interesting medieval sculptures.

The first floor is dedicated to the Lombard Exhibition that displays, in chronological order, very important finds from the first settlement in "Forum Julii" (6th-7th cent.) to the last expression of the Lombard art, already penetrated by the Carolingian world.

The Archaeological Museum of Cividale also displays a private collection of fifty-six Lombard golden coins, some of which are extremely rare and even unknown to official bibliography; this collection is considered the second in the world of this kind, as for the number and importance of the golden pieces.
