Come and Discover:
This talk aims to recount the amazing civilization through the crafts, which are beautifully displayed in the National Etruscan Museum of Villa Giulia, a magnificent Renaissance estate, built by Pope Julius III during his pontificate (1550-1555) and designed by the famous architects Giorgio Vasari, Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola, and Bartolomeo Ammanati, with Michelangelo to advise them.
The National Etruscan Museum of Villa, among the absolute masterpieces recounting about this quite refined civilization, include the clay Sarcophagus of the Spouses from Cerveteri (530 BC); the clay statue of Apollo (VI century BC); the painted terracotta relief depicting the myth of the Seven against Thebes (470-460 BC); the pure gold foil from Pyrgi, with inscriptions in Phoenician and Etruscan (late 6th century BC); the Ficoroni cist from Palestrina (late IV century BC); and the celebrated gold jewelry from the Castellani collection.
The lecture lasts 1 hour with 20 minutes of Q&A at the end!
