Archeological Museum in Peccioli

Archeological Museum in Peccioli has been inaugurated in 2004. Its purpose is a correct preservation of the numerous artifacts found in the archeological site in Ortaglia.
Its main finding is a kylix in red, by the famous Greek painter Makron.

Since 2007 the museum is held in a new location, composed of a series of tunnels. In recent times other findings such as funeral outifts and materials related to nightcults have been added.
In the main room there is a big artwork which shows a Tuscanic temple, according to Vitruvio’s rules.
It has given big importance to technology: in fact there are a lot of multimedial supports around the museum to help students and new generations. They allow to answer questions by touch-screen and there is a 3D movie

The reperts found in the Nort area of Volterra allow to give more and more importance to the museum and to think of new possibilities about Etruscan’s history in their dark period.
