On 8th April 2000, on the celebration of the jubilee, and where once stood the old Pilgrim Hospital, the new site of the Regina Museum saw its inauguration. The displays host the citizens' collections, which are divided into two principal sections: archaeology and maritime.
In regard to the Antiquarim, the exhibition displays the two main areas of excavations in Cattolica, that of the former fruit and vegetable Market square, and the house of Filippini.
The excavations have restored the image of the little village born at the end of Republican Roman epoch and there after developed between the first and middle empire.
All that remains of the ancient settlement are: kitchen, pantry and canteen crockery and little objects from every day life, through which we can imagine the daily routine of a by now remote past.
Boats of the past
Regarding the section dedicated to maritime life and fishing, unique and precious objects are on display, such as boats of various dimensions from different historical periods: from scale reproductions of Logonovo's boat (end of the XIV century), a barge from the Renaissance period, a trawler from the 500s, to the arrownotch of Sigismondo Malatesta (1452).
Of particular note are the excellent models which reproduce the skeletons of a small sailing boat, a small fishing boat, a motorized fishing boat, a boat and a small cargo boat.
