Via Taverne, 46, 53020 Trequanda, SI, Italia
The little Pallavicini Archaeological Collection is found in Trequanda and consists of around 200 exhibits, most of them originating from land owned by the Pallavicini family. The collection has been swollen by various materials purchased on the antiques market in the 1970s.
The original collection includes bronze objects and ceramics from the Villanovan and Etruscan periods (9-6 BC), while the later additions consist mostly of furniture and accoutrements from the Roman era, including coins, oil lamps and glass containers for ointments.
The exhibition, which is based on the geographical and cultural context of those various periods, gives an insight into life in ancient Italy and compares the traditional local customs with the changes that occurred following the intersection with the Greek world.
