Following the volumes published in 2002 and 2012 dedicated respectively to “black figure” Attic ceramics and those of non-Attic production, the Vatican Museums now publish a new scientific catalogue on one of the most prestigious Vatican collections: the Astarita Collection in the Gregorian Etruscan Museum (donated by Mario Astarita to Pope Paul VI in 1967).

The entire collection of Attic “red figure and black paint” ceramic production will be illustrated for the first time: more than 400 artefacts, including vessels and fragments, are studied, catalogued, classified, described and graphically rendered with historic method and scientific rigour (Edizioni Musei Vaticani, 2016).
