Antiquarium Stabiano

The Facebook page Scavi archeologici di Stabiae posted a link to the Wikipedia entry about the Antiquario Stabiano today with the following comment:
'L'Antiquarium stabiano, uno dei 39 musei archeologici italiani, vergognasamente chiuso ormai da quasi 20 anni, con reperti di inestimabile valore e che hanno fatto scuola alla cultura rinascimentale europea'.

I am ashamed to admit that I didn't know about the existence of this Antiquarium, but then that's not so surprising if it's been shut for 20 years ... Apparently it contains wall-paintings from the various Stabian villas, as well as finds from the various necropoli found in the ager Stabianus. How sad that these objects are shut away.
