Major Special Exhibit
16th December 2017 – 17th June 2018

A portrait of the multi-facetted world of the Etruscans, which stood in intensive “international” cultural exchange with other ancient civilizations, is presented the special exhibition.
The project is being realized in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Culture, and with monument Authorities and Museums in Tuscany, Latium, Umbria, Emilia-Romagna and Campania, especially the national museums in Rome and Florence.
