Museo etrusco Guarnacci

Interesting
Monsignor Mario Guarnacci offered this very rich collection of Etruscan archaeological finds to the town. It shows in a chronological way objects coming from the Villanovan period (8C. BC) to the Hellenistic period (4C to the 1C), a phase of creativity expressed in Funerary urns with anthropomorphic caps in tufa, alabaster and sometimes terracotta... and you will see the famous statuette that Gabriele D'Annunzio christened Evening shadow.
