Outstanding Etruscan collection. Wonderful. As a bonus the view of the Cathedral from this museum is incredible! Highly recommended.
Beautiful museum that presents on the first floor the finds of the collections of Mauro Faina that gave rise to the collection and of Eugenio Faina who founded the Fondazione Faina and thus gave rise to the relative museum in the Palazzo Faina in Piazza Duomo. In the upper floor the disposition of the finds is in a thematic sense. There are really valuable pieces in the field of clays, vases and funerary outfits. As added value there is the beautiful palace almost all of nineteenth-century style albeit with a room with an eighteenth-century ceiling and especially the wonderful visit to the square and the Duomo that is only possible from this palace.
