The Museums of Lake Trasimeno
Magione Show map
Constructed by the Gerosolimitani Knights (later the Knights of Malta) towards the end of the 12th century, the Lambardi Tower rises majesticly over the town of Magione.
This extraordinary fortress was at the centre of bitter battles all during the 14th century and until the end of the Middle Ages it changed hands innumerable times. The tower today is a wonderful and panoramic terrace and a modern exhibition centre for fine contemporary art.
It is open to visitors from April to September from Thursday to Sunday.
Private tours at other times on request: "Tarsminas, the Etruscan Lake. Daily life at Trasimeno as seen through sacred images".
A culturally important exhibit-cum-event that offers the visitor not only some seventy items from the times of the Etruscans, but also large format photographs, reconstructions of maps and multimedia interactivity.
It is a journey into the Etruscan age at Lake Trasimeno through the recovery of key elements dealing with life style, material and worship items that have been temporarily brought back to their place of origin. Important relics, some of which have never before been seen by the public, from the Umbrian museum archives.
Curated by the City of Magione, in collaboration with the Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell’Umbria and the Soprintendenza per l’ Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio.
