The Etruscans

We really love Etruscan art, and have done so since our college Art History classes. The previous time we were in Rome, all the Etruscan collections were closed, so it was an important part of this trip to see them. There's two major collections of Etruscan art in Rome, one in the Vatican Museum, and the other in it's own museum, the Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Villa Giulia near the Villa Borghese. Fortunately they were both open, although we nearly missed the Vatican's collection — they closed it down as we were exiting the galleries!

One thing we didn't get any images of was a special exhibition at the Palazzo delle Exposizioni of the Louvre's Etruscan collection. Totally amazing! To be able to see both versions of the famous Etruscan Sarcophagus of Spouses (the Villa Giulia's and the Louvre's) in one city — a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime event!
