On Saturday (August 15, Ferragosto, a national holiday in Italy), winemaker Gianni Cantele visited MARTA, the Archeological Museum in Taranto (Puglia).
“It was wonderful to see the famous collection of [ancient Greek and Roman] gold jewelry,” he wrote, “and the enormous amount of artifacts.”
The image above (posted on Gianni’s Facebook) is a painted vase from ancient Greece. Note the gold laurel wreath that the central character is wearing.
The image below was also snapped by Gianni during his visit.
