Il Lusso del Sonno (The luxury of sleep)
Until the 31st August 2016, it is possible to visit the exhibition "Il lusso del Sonno - I letti in Bronzo di Strozzacapponi" (The luxury of sleep- the bronze beds of Strozzacapponi) at the Antiquarium of Corciano.
The exhibition is dedicated to the recovery of a highly rare bronze bed and pillow-like artefact, discovered during some archaeological digs in Strozzacapponi in 2008.
It was a very important find, because the beauty of the work revealed something more about Etruscan artistic and craft techniques and because of the rarity of the pieces discovered. Subsequent restoration enabled the reconstruction of a bed with a single headboard with a double wooden frame.All in all, pieces belonging to five funerary beds, produced by the same workshop have been found in the tomb, which is part of the Necropolis situated along the ancient road axis that linked Perugia to Chiusi.
