The Birth of Modern Etruscology
This extraordinary exhibition takes visitors on a fascinating journey through paintings, drawings, archaeological items, documents and objects, providing them with a unique insight into the birth of modern Etruscology in the 18th century and the passion of Anglo-Saxons and Europe for the Etruscans.
A unique insight into the charming atmosphere of an 18th century grand tour: the exhibition focuses on the extraordinary figure of Lord Coke and his travels through Italy when he fell under the spell of the Etruscan civilization, which he became a “munificent patron” of.
