Art - History

Over the naked green country it lifts itself in waves and sharp crests, but it is like looking at the sea moved by the bow of a tall ship: "here in Volterra we ride above the world". So David Herbert Lawrence, the famous author of “The lover of Lady Chatterley”, has immortalized the secret charm of this city whose origins get lost in the legend.

history of volterra

Volterra, one of the most ancient cities of Italy, is a casket of treasures, a gem set in the heart in Tuscany, a suggestive symbiosis of times and styles that magically makes her a witness of thirty centuries of history.

Powerful Etruscan testimony, florid Roman town hall, free commune, Volterra shows the harmonious succession of the most shining periods of civilization in a nonstop succession of buildings, of monuments, of works of art, of pictorial foreshortenings, of images that interpret the eternal language of a glorious past.

The Porta all'Arco, famous work of our greats, the splendid Roman Theater, the Baptistery and the basilic Cathedral, center of the diocesan spirituality, the Piazza dei Priori, pugnacious assembly of towers and buildings, represent only some of the beauties of Volterra that deserve to be seen, also not to be missed the rich Etruscan collections of the Guarnacci Museum and the masterpieces of the Pinacoteca and the Museum of sacred art.
