Last Friday, the Wells of Wonders exhibition opened to the public in Florence’s grandiose National Archaeological Museum, featuring 300 ancient items, just a portion of the spectacular objects found at Cetamura del Chianti, an archaeological site discovered in 1964 by Italian avocational archaeologist Alvaro Tracchi. The excavation was led by Nancy de Grummond, Professor of Classics at Florida State University, and engineered by the Italian archaeologists from the firm ICHNOS: Archeologia, Ambiente e Sperimentazione. Throughout the excavation, de Grummond was aided by the Conservation Department at Studio Arts College International (SACI). Read more about the project here.
