“Isidoro Falchi“, the Archaeological Museum of Vetulonia, just a few minutes’ drive from Punta Ala, describes the area’s history through the archaeological finds uncovered in Vetulonia and the surrounding areas.
Inaugurated in 2000, the museum was named after Isidoro Falchi, the doctor and amateur archaeologist who identified the remains of the ancient city of Vetulonia within the archaeological ruins of Colonna di Buriano in the late nineteenth century.
The museum comprises seven rooms, and tells the story of a centre that was inhabited between the tenth and first century BC, and was one of the main cities in the Etruscan “league of twelve cities”.
In addition to its permanent collection, the museum hosts several exhibitions events in collaboration with Tuscany’s Archaeological Department, such as an exhibition of burial artefacts and objects of particular historical and archaeological interest.
