The Historical-Archaeological Museum (MUSA) has been created as part of the Coordinated Project (IN20) of the Universities of Catania and Lecce. It has been funded by both the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) and by the European Union (EU), within the framework of P.O.N. 1994/1999 and P.O.N. 2000/2006.
MUSA is an exhibition centre designed for the valorization, educational fruition and dissemination of the results attained by the historians and archaeologists of the University of Salento over several decades.
