An interesting collection of Etruscan and Roman ruins gathered from the archeological sites that litter the nearby valleys and the Poggio Buco necropolis.
The most famous pieces in the entire museum were collected from a necropolis near Montemerano by the famous local archeologist Riccardo Mancinelli at the end of the 19th century. These include an ancient tomb dug up in 1927 and terracotta from Poggio Sugherello, which was discovered in 1932.
The museum is essentially made up of ceramic and metal works that stretch across the Bronze Age into the Roman Empire.
A large amount of what you’ll find in the various exhibits were actually donated to the state by the local Ciacci family, who were farmers and noblemen who owned the land where many of the archeological sites are located.
