To the origins of Etruscan civilization

Come to visit the National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia, which houses a rich collection of Etruscan finds from Lazio, southern Etruria and Umbria.

Housed in the marvelous architectural frame of the Villa built in the mid 1500's by Pope Julius III, the Museum was inaugurated in 1889 and its collections have been enriched over the years and have been divided into detailed topographical sections.
Today, it also includes the Kircheriana Collection with bronzes and ceramics, and the Castellani Collection with ceramics, bronzes and antique goldsmiths, but one of the world's most famous finds remains the Sarcophagus of the Spouses from Cerveteri, a funeral terracotta monument with natural-size figures, as well as the Pyrgi Tablets engraved on gold foil and the statue of Apollo from Veio in painted terracotta.

These are just some of the testimonies of the life and customs of this ancient civilization that you will find in this museum, and our advice is to let you travel on a journey back in time among the curiosities and mysteries of this ancient and fascinating people.
