The finds in the beautiful Archaeological Museum G.C. Mecenate (housed in what used to be an Olivetan convent, which had been built over a Roman amphitheatre) confirm the importance the centre had during the Etruscan era. From a period which sweeps from the prehistoric age to Roman times, of particular importance is the collection of “Vasi corallini” [coral red vases] made exclusively in the area of Arezzo, together with those of Euphronios and Meidias, masterpieces of Attic ceramics.
