This is a recently discovered Etruscan well located in a residence on Via della Cava. This hand dug well is 36 meters deep (over 118 feet) and consists of two parts merged: the first larger one, has a circular cross section with an average diameter of 3.4 meters. The second smaller one, has a rectangular section of 60cm x 80cm sides and has the typical Etruscan “pedarole,” the point marked on the side walls to allow the descent and ascent.
Inside the structure there’s also possible to admire a part of old kiln with an exposition of medieval ceramics and renaissance majolicas.
Throughout the year the well is open, and during the Christmas period it hosts a Nativity seen “The Nativity in the Well” that changes every year: a traditional and charming depiction of the Nativity with mechanized characters and suggestive settings.
