The National Archaeological Museum held a vast array of historical artifacts that gave me a better view of how some Ancient cultures lived and dressed. This museum contained collections of the Etruscans, Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians.
One commonality that I noticed between these cultures was that both men and women would wear clothing that was loose, usually as some form of tunic, skirt, or dress. Footwear was minimal for the most part, if any were worn it was usually some form of a sandal.
Documentation for the styles of these people came in the form of statues, small figures, pottery, caskets, and small artifacts including jewelry. The only culture that strongly emphasized makeup was the Egyptians; both men and women wore it. Headdresses were usually worn as a sign of status, and a variety of materials were used in these societies, including bronze, gold, precious stones, and other tangible materials.
Overall I found this museum to be a very eclectic collection of ancient materials that enlightened my understanding of the different types of clothing and adornment. However, most of the descriptions were of course in Italian so at times it was difficult to follow the collections in the museum.
