Museo Civico La città sotterranea

The Civic Museum

With the suggestive routes of its three sections ("Il Labyrinth", "Production Activities", "Epigraphic"), the Civic Museum "The Underground City" of Chiusi enriches the panorama of the complex archaeological, historical-artistic and geographical reality of the city that Already he offers the visitor important exhibition spaces (National Archaeological Museum and the Cathedral Museum) and monumental Etruscan Tombs.

The visit of the Civic Museum of Chiusi, therefore, begins by the Palazzo delle Logge where the "Labyrinth" section is set up which documents, through panels, interactive objects, photos and a large plastic, the myth of the Etruscan King Porsenna, whose mausoleum would be Guarded in the heart of a labyrinth excavated right under the city. Leaving the section dedicated to the labyrinth, then, you reach Via Baldetti where you can visit the "productive activities" and "epigraphic" sections.

The first documents the development of the territory economy, a real journey through time and in the traditions of the territory. In the route, agricultural equipment of the XIX and XX centuries are exhibited, while the underground rooms house ceramics from kitchen and canteen (the century of D.C.) and an Etruscan and Roman transport amphorae sampling. These prepare the visit of an environment in which an Etruscan banquet is reproduced, in two-dimensional shapes, as we find it depicted in the frescoes of the tomb of the closed hill.
