From the excavation to the museum
A thousands-year-old history back to life
The Etruscan-Roman Museum Antiquarium is located in Sasso Pisano. It is a collection of the most interesting items found in the excavations of the archeological area “il Bagnone”. Some pieces that certainly stand out are: a “Mnerva” made out of lead and tin and a small bronze statue of a person offering gifts to the gods, both clearly from Volterra, coins dating back to the 3rd century a.D., a terracotta tub, tiles with Etruscan letters on them.
These are significant archeological evidences that confirm the presence of Etruscans and Romans in the area, probably because of its geothermal potential.
