A journey throughtime exploring the sacred and the underworld horizons to rebuild the threads of the Etruscan civilization that in ancient times spread on the north area of the Arno river, along the direction of the Florence-Prato-Pistoia plain, the Mugello/Val di Sieve and Montalbano wide territory.

Between stones, bronzes and steles, what emerges is a fascinating part of history full of suggestions, which reconstructs distant cultural roots of Tuscany through Prato and the epicenter of Gonfienti.

To Gonfienti is dedicated the first section of the exhibition: a special attention is paid to the universe of the sacred, deducible from the devotees figures in bronze, as well from the representation on an important attic kylix (cup) in red-figure assigned to Douris, the famous Athenian painter.

The second section opens the horizon on the production of "Fiesole stones" that best characterize this vast terrotory from which emerged, during the Etruscan age, the centers of Artimino, Fiesole and Gonfienti: steles and stones, decorated relief monuments that identify noble families coming from funerary contexts of the tergeted area.

An exhibition that reveals new aspects so far unknown of the archaeological past of Prato and Tuscany.
