Matelica - Picen tomb of Villa Clara

The tomb of Villa Clara was discovered in 1998 in the area of Rossini street in Mateilica; originally, it was originally enclosed in a circular moat and probably covered with earth. In the tomb, there was the remains of a warrior and his rich collection, such as the two "sceptres", and other precious objects, but also hundreds of grapeseeds, as an evidence of the oldest forms of viticulture in Italy.
