Fiesole and the Longobards
The Civic Archaeological Museum of Fiesole celebrates its 100 years. This important anniversary is celebrated with an exhibition showing the Longobard artefacts found in Fiesole and in the excavation campaigns carried out by the Superintendency for the Archaeological Heritage of Tuscany in the Garibaldi area.
The pieces on display come from approximately forty tombs dating back to the seventh century AD: earrings, necklaces, rings, ancient blades, spears, arrows, shields and other weapons.
For the first time, Fiesole and the Longobards shows these extraordinary pieces, which had a leading role in the age-old history of the city on the hill.
