Southern Italian, Etruscan and Roman pottery collection
Southern Italian pottery production is particularly well represented by a set of Apulian vases. These probably came from a funerary context and belonged to Giovanni Battista Comolli, a neoclassical sculptor working during the Napoleonic age in France and Piedmont. Two other relevant pieces are the hydriai bells purchased by Carlo Albizzati, a professor of Archaeology at the University of Pavia between 1929 and 1948.
Black painted pottery and an interesting overpainted crater from Volterra represent Etruscan-Italic civilization.
Tableware pottery, terra sigillata potteries and amphorae attest the production of Roman ceramics.
