the locality of Campiglia dei Foci, a hamlet of Colle di Val D'Elsa,
about 4 km west of the town, there came news of the discovery
of a single chambered tomb already previously violated in the
second half of the last century.
In 1984, quite by chance, an ancient Etruscan tomb known as 'Tomba
Pierini', taking its name from the proprietor of the land on which
it was discovered, came to light in the garden at the front of
Two display cases now hold the restored material in room number
4 on the first floor of the Museum.
The most interesting aspects of this burial place are that it
dates back to the Archaic period, and the entirety of its rich
fund of artefacts is unique in Val D'Elsa. It is well worth noting
the Etrusco-Corinthian oil jars and the double donation vessel.
