Overview

The National Etruscan Museum in Villa Giulia is considered the most representative Italian Museum of the Etruscan civilization and it is located within Villa Giulia, the suburban residence of Pope Jules III (1550-55), designed by Vignola and realized with the participation of Ammannati and Vasari.
In 1889 the villa was destined to be the Museum of the pre-Roman Antiquities of Latium. Two wings were added between 1912 and 1923.
Specific sections are also dedicated to Etruscan epigraphy, to the history of the Museum and to the architectonic complex of Valle Giulia. Of particular interest are the exhibits of:
- the Apollo from Veio (sixth century BC)
- the Sarcophagus of the Spouses from Cerveteri (sixth century BC)
- the high relief and the golden thin sheets from Pyrgi (fifth century BC)
- the Apollo dello Scasato from Falerii (fourth century BC)
- the Centaur from Vulci (sixth century BC)
- the so-called Cista Ficoroni from Palestrina (fourth century BC).
