Palazzo Oddo

The imposing eighteenth-century palace, built from the incorporation of some medieval houses, already home to a historic college and now the civic library, houses, on the first floor, the permanent exhibition “Magical transparencies. The glasses of ancient Albingaunum ": a treasure of inestimable value composed of over one hundred glass objects, dating from the 1st to the 3rd century AD, coming from distant geographical areas, often with rare or even unique forms, found in Albenga in the necropolis Roman. The most outstanding of these is the extraordinary blue plate from the beginning of the 2nd century, decorated with carving with a figurative scene.
