Overview

The museum is housed in the old 13th Century Augustinian monastery. It displays some really unique findings from the Villanovian-Etruscan era, which is commonly dated between the 9th and 4th Century BCE. Important wool garments, rich funeral clothes both (male and female) were found in excavations of the Villanovia necropoli. These items are perfectly preserved because of the chemical and physical conditions of the rocks where the sepultures were made. Weaving instruments as well as burial urns and food offers were also found in the tombs and are now on display. Some every day items, precious jewels and bronze and ceramic artifacts, weapons, and, a really rare finding ie wooden objects, show the extreme refinement of the craftmanship of this civilisation, which is both important and long gone.
