An archaeological exhibition staged in the museum, and focusing on food consumption in the Etruscan area, particularly in the Etruscan city of Marzabotto- Kainua.
The exhibition is organized in several sections. Beginning with issues related to food consumption in ancient times, it explores the use of natural resources in the Iron Age; the use of water, oil, and wine; and the way food was consumed through everyday tableware and other items. The exhibition ends with a look at the symbolic aspects of food through a symposium table set, the tradition of banquets in Etruria, and the cult of Dionysius-Fufluns, the god of wine.
