The Museum

The Archaeological Museum collects the materials of the most recent discovery in the city and in the territory; therefore, together with the Faina Foundation Museum, located on the opposite side of the Piazza del Duomo, a synthesis of archaeological knowledge about Orvieto. The rooms of the Museum collect, according to a topographical and summarically chronological order, the materials recovered during the researches in the necropolis and sanctuaries near the city of Orvieto, as well as all the artifacts found following works carried out in urban areas, thus posing as formidable instrument of knowledge of the social and cultural reality of one of the richest and most important centers of Etruria.
In the main hall are presented materials of ancient and new discovery from the northern necropolis of Crocifisso del Tufo. Noteworthy are some funerary objects, rich in objects, both imported and locally produced, such as bucchero.
The adjoining room contains some objects recovered during the excavation in the necropolis of Porano, one of the minor centers that stood in the crown of the city on the cliff. The burials are of a high level and in some cases have been embellished with parietal paintings, among the few examples of this artistic expression, at least in the inner Northern Etruria. In an adjoining environment the reconstruction of the two Golini tombs, found at the end of the nineteenth century, is proposed, whose paintings, detached from the walls of the tombs, for obvious reasons of security and correct conservation, have been relocated according to the original positions.
