History Carved in Stone

Veronese writer Scipione Maffei started this museum in 1745 to honor written words as a way of creating memories. It houses ancient gravestones covered in posthumous inspiration. Among these is one of the largest collections of Greek epitaphs in Italy. An incredible collection of Etruscan urns is also housed here. In total, there are over 500 inscriptions in Latin, Etruscan, Greek, and more. This is a great stop for lovers of antiquities, and for anyone who believes that the future is rooted in the words of the past. The entrance is at the southwestern corner of Piazza Bra.
