Following the footsteps of the Etruscans: Gavorrano’s Archaeological Museum

The museum is housed in a building located in the center of Gavorrano. It was created to host the collections of artifacts uncovered during archaeological digs conducted in Santa Teresa, in the Gavorrano area. These projects, carried out from 2005 to 2007, were curated by the University of Florence. The museum is currently hosting an exhibition called ‘Aristocracy, agriculture and commerce: the Etruscans in Santa Teresa’. This noteworthy show opens with the presentation of the archaeological site and its digs. It serves to strengthen studies regarding Etruscan findings and spotlights the populations that once inhabited areas linked to the city of Vetulonia, which was responsible for regulating the area’s mine districts.
