Archaeological research is still under way at the ancient site of Trebbio, located in the Tiber River Valley just a few kilometres south of Sansepolcro. Important pieces have been unearthed in this corner of Tuscany, wedged between the Umbria, Marche and Romagna regions, providing new insight into the late protohistoric age.
An unexpected historic picture dating back to the Iron Age (VIII-VI century B.C.) was discovered, providing clues about the formation of a vast centre of Umbrian-Ascoli Piceno facies, along with its residential and manufacturing areas. Of particular interest is the manufacturing centre discovered in the village of Spinellina dedicated to the kiln firing of ceramic pottery.
