The Palazzone Necropolis is located in a well-equipped archaeological area, with 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.
The sepulcher—one of the most significant examples of the funerary architecture of the Hellenistic Age—reproduces the canonic arrangement of rooms of a Roman Domus. The main spaced, called "tablinum", houses seven cinerary depositions, all kept inside urns, whose lids reproduce the portrait-like-features of the deceased.
The necropolis dates mostly to the Hellenistic Age—between the 3rd and 1st century B.C.—while a nucleus of five tombs—in two different areas—dates from the second half of the 6th beginning of the 5th century B.C., i.e. the Archaic Age. Information
