Museum of the Etruscan Academy and of the city of Cortona

The Museum of the Etruscan Academy of Cortona - MAEC - collects precious finds, organized in a complete museum itinerary and in line with contemporary exhibition trends. The MAEC brings together the ancient eighteenth-century collections of the Etruscan Academy, an Egyptian section, the historical library and the works of Gino Severini with the most recent archaeological finds that illustrate the history of Cortona, including the pieces found in the Archaeological Park of Sodo.

In the museum collection it is worth mentioning the Tabula cortonensis, the third longest Etruscan text, the Etruscan chandelier, the Tondo by Luca Signorelli, the Musa Pulimnia, the Triptych with Madonna, Child and Saints, the Tempietto Ginori, the funeral boat in wood and the Statuette of Culsans in bronze.
