Museo Claudio Faina – un aperçu du monde étrusque

  • Museo Claudio Faina – un aperçu du monde étrusque

    Orvieto est une cité étrusque mais le meilleur moyen de le ressentir facilement est d’aller en voir les trésors au Musée Municipal Etrusque. Le Museo Etrusco Claudio Faina, situé sur la Piazza del Duomo, en face de la cathédrale, est l’endroit idéal pour une vue d’ensemble. Le Musée abrite une importante collection archéologique de travaux étrusques et hellénistiques, principalement reliés à la région d’Orvieto. Fondé par un comte local en 1864, ses collections seraient basées sur le don de vases qu’aurait fait la nièce de Napoléon Bonaparte au fondateur du musée. (c’est la famille Bonaparte qui a découvert la nécropole étrusque de Vulci). 
    Parmi les pièces maîtresses du musée, on trouve le bucchero noir, des vases attiques ainsi que des poteries du IVe siècle représentant Vanth, la déesse étrusque et ailée du monde souterrain, dont les bras sont enveloppés de serpents. Les romains changèrent le nom de cette cite étrusque de Volsinii en Urbs Vetus, et donc Orvieto. Malgré tout, les trouvailles hellénistiques datant du Ve siècle avant J.-C. attestent du fait que les ateliers de terre cuite de la ville florissaient pendant cette période et copiaient des travaux inspirés de la Grèce Antique. Depuis le deuxième étage vous aurez une jolie vue sur le Duomo, la Cathédrale d’Orvieto.
