Collections / Sections / Etrusco-Italic collection


The items conserved in this room were found in various regions, and especially in central Italy. These have been acquired through exchanges with other museums and from established Bolognese collections, such as those of the University, the Palagi collection and other lesser ones. In displaying these items, the directors of the 19th-century museum sought to provide the visitor with a useful comparison with the Etruscan finds from archaeological digs in the Bologna area. The numerous items on show bare witness to the rich artistic and crafts production of pre-Roman Italy.
