The collection: the Sanna Museum is a polyvalent structure that guards various collections: a collection of archaeological material, a collection of paintings and a collection of ethnographic material (not exposed).
In the picture-gallery they are exposed approximately fifty paintings that include a period that goes from the XIV sec. until 1900s.
The archaeological section is certainly the most meaningful of the museum.
The most ancient remains go back to the inferior Palaeolithic (500.000 years ago). The materials of the prenuragical period comprise ceramics, stone tools, a series of stone little statues that symbolizes the Goddess Mother and a series of limestone stone stelae.
A whole room is dedicated to the prehistorical monument of Accoddi Mount, that is few kilometers far from Sassari: they are exposed the remains who were found, in that place, a series of significant panels and even an hologram of the monument.
The collection of the nuragical period comprises ceramics, bronze arms, several tools and a series of little bronzes of the nuragical period. It is remarkable the resetting of the central monument of the ” Hut of the Reunions “, from the nuragical village Palmavera ofAlghero.
The most meaningful objects of the Phoenician-Punic period are the jewels and the terra-cotta masks.
The collection of the Roman period includes the various type ceramics, the urns, the glassies, the jewels, some mosaics, statues and epigraphes.
It is interesting the ” Table of Esterzili “: it is a bronze table in which it is engraved the ordinance with which the Roman proconsul Lucio Elvio Agrippa tried to put down the conflicts between the populations of the inland, the Barbaricini, and the Patulcensi Campani situated in the south of the island, in the 69 a.C..
All the collections are equipped by explicative panels.
