A very pleasant, personal and educational experience at this small museum featuring Messapians artifacts discovered in a nearby necropolis in the late 1980s. We had the wisdom and warm welcome of the manager himself to help us understand the displays. The Messapians predates the Romans in the Puglia region of Italy. They traded with and were influenced by the ancient Greeks. While they used the Greek alphabet, the Messapians had their own language. This small archeological museum is a gem with each facet being a window onto this remarkable and still mysterious civilization. There is no entry fee, but try to make whatever donation you can. The museum is proud of its local heritage and wants to keep this cultural and historical resource local with more educational programs to promote it. While you're in town, walk the streets of Alezio. The architecture is a delight.
