In the center of Foggia, the Civic and Pinacoteca Museum contains painted archaeological treasures and also an ethnographic section. In the first section you can admire a valuable collection of prehistoric finds from the Neolithic village of Masseria Guadone. There are also numerous ceramics daunie that belonged to rich funeral outfits and Roman sculptures found in the town of Arpi. In the lapidary there are finds referring to the tombs of the knights and to the hypogeum of the Medusa with scenographic reconstructions. The Pinacoteca preserves works by local authors such as Francesco Saverio Altamura, some paintings attributed to Francesco De Mura and the school of Solimena, which are flanked by some specimens to be attributed to the Neapolitan school. In the ethnographic section, the common thread is the peasant culture of the nineteenth century in the Gargano land, with its urban development.
