Etruscan tumulus of Montefortini

In the town of Comeana, on the main road leading to Signa, is found the most important Etruscan tomb in the territory known as Montefortini. Of oval shape, over 12 metres high, it dates from the VII- VI century B.C. The oldest tomb, of monumental aspect, occupies the central part of the tumulus and features an unroofed dromos (corridor) that leads to a circular cell enclosed by roofing with concentric rings, supported by a pilaster.
The second tomb, dated between 620 and 590 B.C. is reached through a corridor 13 metres long, with high walls made of sandstone slabs in the lower part, blocks of alberese in the upper part.
