The Archeological Exposition presents artifacts recovered from the area around the Cassero which establish Castiglion Fiorentino as a "new Etruscan centre" with evidence dating back to the end of the 7th century. The exhibit is supported by didactic reconstructions and other multimedia explanations which treat a variety of themes. For example, the extraordinary re-creation of an Etruscan Sanctuary from the 5th-2nd century BCE and the underground archeology tour which takes you through the wall structure of an Etruscan temple, the temple annex and Medieval towers.
