manciano museo preistoriaOne of the territory's most important museums, the Museo di Preistoria e Protostoria (Prehistory and Protohistory Museum) recreates the lifestyles of the ancient civilisations that once filled the valleys of the Albegna and Fiora Rivers.

Divided into different exhibits, the museum has a set walkway that begins in the Neolithic period and works its way through the Copper Age to the Bronze Age of the extremely fascinating Etruscans.

Information cards, audiovisual aids and detailed displays accompany the ceramics, utensils, weapons and other ruins that have been sourced from archaeological sites all over the territory and collated by the extremely passionate Professor Ferrante Rittatore Vonwiller.

Together these aids paint a detailed picture of the ancient roots of the Maremma, as well as the people who once inhabited it.

N.B: This museum is currently being renovated. You can still visit it, but just watch out for the builders who are working to make the museums bigger and better.
