abstract

In 1895, the writer and diplomat Carlo Dossi (1849‑1910) retired to Corbetta, near Milan, and devoted himself to archaeological field research, leading excavations in the area and designing his own museum. If we look at the Antiquarium forense set up by Giacomo Boni in Rome, we can see that the innovative and up-to-date aspects are the hallmark of this museum. In addition, the museum’s specialised library is reviewed, pointing out the complex nature of this place, which is now assessed as a tool for narrating the story of this territory in a captivating and multimedial way.
