The Italians have so many antiquities that the less well-preserved or smaller ones are simply sitting on wooden pallets in the hall to the bathroom.

  1. Some of the larger museums have warehouses filled with antiques that are quietly waiting to be processed. We have so much past to sort through, we don’t even have a good idea about how much we actually have.

  2. As an Italian who travelled and lived around the world, I must say without any nationalistic bias, that we have a pretty unique amount of history and art at our disposal. It is not just the museum, where basically we have no space to display everything, it is simply walking around any of the city in the country and you’ll basically be submerged into history and art at every step. Pretty obvious until you do it and feel it.

  3. There is so much stuff like that in Italy that they find statues and columns in peoples gardens and used as foundations for barns and buildings. They find ancient Roman columns being used as tables and outdoor furniture. They say that you can’t stick a shovel in the ground without finding something in Italy. When I lived in Milan, a guy I worked with invited me over one weekend. We were sitting out n his yard and he showed me the head of a statue sticking up from the ground his garden. I asked why he didn’t calll the University or the Antiquities people, and said “Hell no! They will come and dig up my yard to do a preliminary survey and then leave huge holes everywhere for years. They forbid you to cover it back up, but they say they can’t spare people to come and do the archeology.” He said that people have trouble selling homes when stuff is found. He also said “God forbid they find a major site!” He knew someone who called in a discovery in his yard and they found a major structure, part of which was under his house. They took his property from him and paid shit for it, and tore down his house.” It is amazing how much is there. He gave me some Roman coins he found in his garden too. Very cool.
