The ground floor houses the evocative, real life reconstruction of a sepulchral room belonging to a funerary chamber that was recovered in the territory of Chianciano’s Thermal Springs, which brought to light some of the richest sepulchral finds discovered to date. It is likely that this would have been a Princely tomb dating to the VII century B.C.. It was discovered near the town along an important road axle which, across the Orcia and Ombrone valleys, leads towards the important Etruscan coastal cities of Vetulonia and Populonia. The artefacts recovered clearly indicate the deceased’s status, perhaps an aristocrat who at the moment of his passing wanted to surround himself with symbolic objects, such as those making up his funerary symposium. This included a rare bronze leaf table with the main body and legs decorated with embossed patterns, along with the other symposium items such as vases and andirons. Notable is the globular bronze ossuary, which would have originally been topped with a wooden head, of which only the gold leaf and bone and amber eyes belonging to the mask today remain. There is also a splendid embossed bronze shield depicting geometric and zoomorphic motifs present. Another interesting tomb is exhibited in this room, which is two centuries more recent and boasts multiple sepulchres, where house shaped cinerary urns can be observed made of fetid stone where the deceased’s ashes were deposited, decorated with vibrant colours testifying to the chromatic wealth of this ancient world.
