Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca - for Etruscan Cortona

  • Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca - for Etruscan Cortona

    Set in the 13th-century Palazzo Casali, which incorporates Etruscan walls, the Etruscan Academy is the place to get to grips with the city’s ancient origins. The museum, set just behind the Palazzo Comunale, is a reminder that Cortona, enclosed by stone walls dating to Etruscan and Roman times, was the most important Etruscan city in the north of Tuscany. The highlight is a -genuine Etruscan chandelier dating from the 5th-century BC, with the lamps representing dolphins, gorgons and stylised waves. There is also a recreation of the interior of an Etruscan tumulus, the Secondo Melone di Sodo. These and other finds come from Etruscan tombs in Sodo, just outside town. Equally lovely is the fresco of Polymnia, considered to be a fine Roman painting of the Muse of Song until recent research suggested it was an 18th-century forgery. This eclectic and underrated museum covers more than Etruscan and Roman finds and strays into Egyptology, 18th-century decorative arts and even Futurism. Gino Severini, a leading Futurist artist, was born in Cortona and his works are on display here.

CHIANTI
By far the most famous of the Tuscan wines, Chianti is a red wine produced in the Chianti region and is made from the Sangiovese grape, giving it a note of summer fruit and spices. Not all Chianti wines are created equally and those of the Chianti Classico form are thought to be of the highest quality. This stems from the fact that these wines can only be called Chianti Classico if they are produced in specific region of Tuscany, known for its Chianti production, and if they adhere to stringent rules regarding the process by which they are made.
