Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia

Etruscan Museum at the edge of the Villa Borghese

The Villa Giulia on the northern edge of the Villa Borghese was built by Pope Julius III in 1553 and has been home, with its 40 rooms, to the Etruscan Museum since 1889. In the Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia there are many exhibits from archaeological sites throughout Lazio, Umbria and Etruria. The Romans once deliberately concealed all evidence that pointed to this enigmatic earlier culture of ancient Rome. Excavations have nevertheless revealed a lot of interesting discoveries. Particular highlights include gorgeous decorated urns and a reconstructed grave plant from the necropolis of Cerveteri from the 8th Century B.C. The famous terracotta sarcophagus of a reclining couple of Cerveteri and the terracotta statue of Apollo originate from the 6th Century B.C. In addition to these great finds, numerous grave goods, utensils, jewellery and vases can be seen.
