Scuderie Aldobrandini
il MUSEO TUSCOLANO
°* LA SEZIONE ARCHEOLOGICA *° Al piano terreno, nelle due sale, è collocata la sezione archeologica permanente, una piccola ma preziosa raccolta di reperti tutti provenienti dalla città romana di Tusculum e del territorio circostante, risalenti ad un arco di tempo che va dall’età repubblicana al medioevo: sculture, urne cinerarie, epigrafi in latino arcaico, ceramiche, vetri, bassorilievi.

Benché il Museo Tuscolano sia ufficialmente nato nel 1903, con prima esposizione nella sala Colonnata di Palazzo Marconi, in realtà, anche in seguito ai due conflitti mondiali, i reperti archeologici sono stati dispersi in varie sedi. Solo nel 1950, con il contributo scientifico del professor Maurizio Borda della Soprintendenza alle Antichità e Belle Arti di Roma, fu riunito un nucleo di materiali nel Palazzo Vescovile di Frascati.

L’attuale e definitiva sede del Museo Tuscolano offre pertanto, per la prima volta, al pubblico e agli studiosi la visibilità dell’intera collezione riunita, esposta in modo adeguato, permettendone quindi una lettura scientificamente più approfondita.

L’esposizione è di tipo tematico ed è caratterizzata da una grande e suggestiva spina centrale al cui interno sono posizionati numerosi reperti rinvenuti principalmente nel sito dell’antica città latina di Tuscolo.

Lungo le pareti perimetrali sono state fissate numerose epigrafi e diversi materiali scultorei, riferibili principalmente all’epoca imperiale, mentre su steli e mensole in cemento armato, appositamente studiati, sono collocate grandi statue marmoree, capitelli, urne cinerarie, cornici ed architravi. Tra i vari reperti, si segnalano le urne cinerarie a cassa con tetto a doppio spiovente in pietra sperone, con iscrizioni d’epoca repubblicana; una base onoraria con la rappresentazione della Vittoria nell’atto di scrivere l’evento bellico a cui si riferisce il blocco di marmo, una scena di cattura, ed il bottino di guerra; un frammento colossale di Afrodite, rinvenuto nel centro di Frascati; un frammento relativo al volto di un giovanetto, riferibile all’epoca giulio-claudia; numerose lastre fittili di rivestimento e diversi elementi architettonici rinvenuti a Tuscolo nel corso degli scavi condotti dalla Scuola Spagnola di Storia e Archeologia; è inoltre di particolare interesse un gruppo scultoreo caratterizzato dalla statua arcaizzante di Dioniso accompagnato dalla pantera.
