The State Archaeological Museum of Urbisaglia is located in the historic city center and houses finds from the territory of the Roman city, recovered from surveys starting in the 18th century and continuing to this day. The exhibit is laid out on two floors organized according to didactic and typological criteria. Among the exhibits on the ground floor stands a beautiful marble neo-Attic crater, decorated with the representation of a ritual procession with three dancing nymphs, which in its refinement of execution is a unique example in the Marche panorama; still on the ground floor, there are some artifacts found during the investigation concerning the aqueduct and the temple with the cryptoporticus. On the first floor of the museum, notable among the exhibits in the first room are two fragments of the list of Roman consuls and a very rare fragment of the list of triumphs, an important historical document in which the victories of the Romans are reported from the time of founding of the city to the Augustan Age. Fragments of lists of triumphs have been found exclusively in Rome and Urbs Salvia. Remaining on the first floor, there are some showcases dedicated to ceramic artifacts of daily use, two halls dedicated to the architectural decorations of the theater, and one to the monumental epigraphs found at the amphitheater, rich in information about the monument.

Vino e olio, eccellenze dell’agricoltura e della gastronomia marchigiana, sono da sempre al centro dell’economia e dell’identità culturale locale, come testimoniano i numerosi impianti per la produzione olearia e vinicola presenti sin dall’età picena nella regione. Il viaggio alla scoperta del territorio dedicato all’antica produzione dell’olio e del vino ci conduce lungo la Salaria Gallica, strada che collegava Fossombrone ad Ascoli Piceno passando per le principali colonie romane, immerse nelle verdi colline marchigiane.
