The third edition of Bluetrusco, the only festival dedicated to the Etruscan culture, will take place at Murlo’s castle. The event, which will take place from 13th to 30th July and from 29th September to 1st October, aims to enhance the local territory and the local production but also to celebrate the Tuscan ancestors. In fact, researches carried out on the DNA of the local population have shown many similarities with the one of the Etruscans.
The planned initiatives for the third editions are very interesting: famous archeologists will depict the ancient capitals cities of the pre-Roman era and, in addition to the scientific aspects, there will also be entertainment and music shows, workshops, hikes and the inauguration of a guided tour that leads from the Archeological Museum of Murlo to Poggio Civitate, ancient Etruscan settlement studied by the University of Massachusetts Amhers.
The atmosphere of this small medieval village is magical: located in the Val di Merse, on the border with the Crete Senesi and the area of Montalcino, its landmarks are the fortified castle of the 13th century and the cathedral. The area is rich in castles, ancient farmhouses and parish churches. Murlo is the ideal destination for pleasant excursions in an extraordinary landscape, rich in signs from the past: for example, in the woods, there are ancient mines, springs, small villages and the track of the coal railroad, sign of an ancient culture that chose to settle in a fertile ground rich in minerals.
