The exhibition

Piano terra Piano primo

The Museum traces the most important phases of the history of the Faliscan populations, from the early Iron Age to the Roman conquest in 241 BC, through the worthy display of tomb items and the valued and famous” wall coverings ”of the temple architecture.

Besides the more detailed collection, dedicated to the antiquities of Falerii, today's Civita Castellana, and “capital” of the Faliscan nation: there are also objects from other places within the territory, such as Narce, exceptionally rich in finds, located between Mazzano and Calcata, or the smaller but also important settlements of Nepi, Corchiano and Vignanello.

Noteworthy among the most significant finds are the mid 7th century BC oak trunk coffins from the Falerii, the works of the Diespater painter, a leading exponent of the oldest local red-figure pottery production, and Narce's jewellery, a tufa ( type of earth) head with a crown of bronze leaves, a rare relic of a cult statue from the sanctuary of Juno Curitis. Another “curiosity” might perhaps be the gold dental prosthesis, valuable evidence of dental practices of the time, the only fixed prosthesis known so far.
