The “F. Nicosia” Archeological Museum and Archaeological Area of Carmignano

Prato - Carmignano
Museums

 

Created in 1981 and opened in 1983, thanks to the participation of the City of Carmignano and the Tuscan Superintendant for Archeology and Cultural Heritage, the Artimino Museum first opened in the cellars of the Medici Villa “La Ferdinanda”.

The new  museum, located in an old wine cellar inside the city, was inaugurated on March 26, 2011.

The museum illustrates the history of the Etruscan city of Artimino and the surrounding area displaying artifacts that have been found primarily during fifty years of excavations.  This area, in fact, from the Orientalizing period of the Etruscan Civilization (VII century B.C.), had an extraordinary economic and cultural development, thanks to its fertile ground and strategic location close to the meeting point of two rivers the Pistoiese Ombrone  and Bisenzio in Arno.  This allowed Artimino control of the commercial routes that connected Etruria proper to Etruria Padana as well as the northern regions of the Italian penisola. 

The upper level is dedicated to the population of the area with  its different settlements and evidence of daily life:   “The World of the Living“.  The lower level presents the most interesting aspects of the necropolis in:  ” The World of the Dead“. Each section is organized topographically and chronologically.

The visitor travels through time to discover the wonderful artifacts that have been brought to light primarily by Francesco Nicosia, the archaeologist to whom the museum is dedicated.
