Villa Cassis Faraone, the seat of the Museum, was erected between 1812 and 1825 and its rooms host a collection of statues and objects of daily life and personal accessories.

The Lapidarie Galleries outside the Museum host a certain number of materials classified according to their type and historical period: the most significant categories are undoubtedly the funeral monuments and mosaics.
