SACI Conservation students, under the direction of Conservation instructor, Nora Marosi, worked on more than 200 artifacts discovered at Cetamura dating to the Etruscan, Roman, and Late Antique periods between the 3rd century BCE and 4th CE. SACI Design students, led by Design Area Head Camilla Torna, created the promotional and marketing materials for the Wells of Wonders exhibition and the identity design for the future museum.  

SACI encourages you to contribute to the fundraising effort by FSU and the Comune of Gaiole for the new museum fittings (cases, pedestals, wall hangings, labels, etc.). Supporters in the US can make a tax-deductible pledge at the FSU Foundation (email Alexia Chamberlynn for instructions) and Italians can make a contribution on Artbonus (also with a tax incentive).
