The archaeological area features a section where Etruscan crops are re-created on the basis of archaeological and archaeobotanical documentation. Two rows of grapevines growing on living trees – known in Italian as vite maritata and locally as piantate – have been planted, along with small plots of flax, barley, and field beans.
Two celebrations will be organized concurrently with the harvest: in June for barley and field beans, and in October for grapes. This will make it possible to re-enact a slice of history and imagine, through workshops and hands-on experience, how these products were used.
