On this day in late October we visited the local museum with its fascinating displays, particularly of the bronze jewelry ensembles adorning elite ladies of the day. Pay particular attention to the "mannikin" in the first gallery and to the line drawings throughout in order to gain an enhanced appreciation of the types of jewelry worn by those women. The labels and didactic panels are in Italian. A short walk from the museum brings one to the remains of the 6th century BC Temple of Hera, labeled in both Italian and English. At the time of our visit in late October the archaeological park was literally drowned by an enormous flood on which the local media devoted special attention. As of this writing, one is shocked by the prospects of how damaged this site is and there is no indication about when it might be re-opened to tourists.
