The Montagnola Tomb is an Etruscan funerary monument of Orientalizing type dating back to the 7th century a.C. The architectural structure is reminiscent of the great Mycenaean tholos tomb, with the false dome of projecting slabs and the impressive dromos leading to the circular funeral hall. It consists of an uncovered corridor (dromos) and an internal one enclosed by a 70-metre diameter mound, leading to a rectangular vestibule and two side cells. A narrow ogive door opens into the main chamber, which is covered by rows of progressively projecting slabs of stone resting on a vertical socle. The summit is closed by a square slab supported by a pilaster, with coloured plaster and inscriptions.
