Attic and Magna Graecia pottery

Ceramiche attiche e magnogreche Gallerie d'italia Vicenza

The Palazzo Leoni Montanari storeroom houses Intesa Sanpaolo’s prestigious collection of Attic and Magna Graecia pottery.

The historic Caputi collection, assembled in the first half of the 1900s, is made up of over five hundred artefacts from the necropolis of Ruvo di Puglia, a flourishing ancient town situated in the present-day province of Bari. The pottery examples, which as a whole provide a valuable insight into the art and culture of Western Greece, were either produced between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC in Apulia and in Lucania, or imported from Athens.
