The Museo Nazionale di Reggio Calabria is one of Italy's most prestigious archaeological museums since it accommodates numerous and significant testimonies of the Magna Graecia settlements in Calabria, surfaced through excavations and searches carried out over more than a hundred years. Also belonging to this museum, are the world-renowned Riace bronzes, perhaps the most sensational underwater archaeological discovery of the last century. www.archeocalabria.beniculturali.it
