A palace next to the cathedral houses what began as private collection in 1864. Interestingly, some of the most stunning pieces are not Etruscan at all, but Greek—Attic black-figure (6th-c.-b.c.) and red-figure (5th-c.-b.c.) vases and amphorae from Athenian workshops (including some by Greek master Exekias from 540 b.c.) that were bought by discriminating Etruscan collectors. You’ll see the resemblance to Etruscan black bucchero ware from the 6th and the 5th century b.c.
