The Domus del Chirurgo is a large archaeological area with evidence spanning 2000 years of history, a small Pompeii, in the heart of the historic center, a stone's throw from the City Museum. The discovery dates back to July 1989, during the urban redevelopment works of Piazza Ferrari. The excavation work, which lasted about ten years, allowed to identify the archaeological site developed between the Roman era and late antiquity, revealing an imperial dwelling inside which owes its name to the profession of an important doctor, as evidenced by the tools found.
Exceptional is the surgical-pharmaceutical kit returned from the medical records attached to the domus, the richest that has come down to us since antiquity: the quantity and variety of instruments indicate that the surgeon worked in various branches (from dentistry, to ophthalmology, all urology, orthopedics ...), while the profession of pharmacist is witnessed by large stone mortars, pestles, scales, glass and ceramic containers. Destroyed by a fire in the mid-third century under the pressure of the barbarians, it has preserved rooms decorated with splendid mosaics, frescoes and refined furnishings.
The site can be visited every Wednesday morning, until August 26, 2020, at 10.30 am a free visit to the Surgeon's House will be offered (max 15 participants).
Reservation is required (tel. 0541 793851)
