The location in the Arno Valley where Orientalizing tombs have been found at dei Boschetti and Montefortini. The most impressive tumulus belongs to the Montefortini tomb, with a diameter of 70 meters and a 13-meter-long access corridor. The grave goods were not well preserved but included bucchero, local coarse pottery, bronze and gold sheets, iron, glass, ivory, and bone, in the tradition of many other contemporary tombs of the late seventh century BC (e.g., Castellina in Chianti). The tombs are most probably associated with the nearby settlement of Artimino. This is a settlement typical of the less centralized power along the Arno corridor.
