Archaeological Museum of Artimino

The Museum, dedicated to the archaeologist Francesco Nicosia, is located in an ancient building along the walls of the village of Artimino in the town of Carmignano and it documents the important Etruscan settlement flourished in the area from the seventh to the first century BC. The richness of this settlement was linked to the control of land and river commercial traffic. The persistence of wide commercial and cultural relations is confirmed by discovering luxurious Greek-oriental and Volterra type objects in the tombs. The Museum hosts in fact objects from Etruscan tombs of Comeana and Poggio alla Malva, among which an elegant incense burner made of bucchero, and a trousseau from the end of the sixth century BC, including a crater with red figures and a rich set of bronze banquet vases.
The museum also carries out educational activities for schools and families.
