Palazzone Necropolis and Volumni Hypogeum - Perugia
The Necropoli del Palazzone is located today in a well-equipped archaeological area, with visit pathways and an Antiquarium that hosts some finds and thematic displays of the Etruscans' daily life.
The cemetery, located 7 kilometers to the southwest of Perugia—in the modern suburb of Ponte San Giovanni—was connected with a settlement supervising a portion of the Tiber Valley below. It consists of about 200 chamber-like tombs excavated in the natural soil. Inside the necropolis, the Volumni Hypogeum, distinguished for the complexity of its internal arrangement and decorative commitment, belonged to the "Volumni", i.e. the rich Velimna family.
