Does anyone know of any arms and armour collections--small or large--near Perrugia, Italy (within maybe 100km)?

Here, many archaeological remains of Etruscans and Romans, I do not think weapons

Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell'Umbria
Piazza Giordano Bruno, 10 - 06121 Perugia

Museo Archeologico Statale di Spoleto
Via S.Agata, 18/A - 06049 Spoleto



Only, I know bronzes relevant to a complete armour, consisting of helmet, schinieri (is a piece of armour that protects the leg - Greaves perhaps the correct term in your language ) breastplate and shield.
Museo Archeologico Statale di Orvieto
Piazza del Duomo - 05018 Orvieto

Here swords:
Museo Archeologico Statale di Terni.


Here's an example: photo below
Sword italic, type Cuma: a semicircular base of the blade. Plate to the frame of the very large pommel. Narrow base of the blade with sloping shoulders (type C). Decorated with carved beams along the edges of the blade, obtained with a burin.
Early Iron Age 899 BC - 800 BC

These are more or less than 100 km. Perugia.

But maybe you wanted private collections? Blush

I apologize for the delay, I was not in town.
To my knowledge only a Renaissance sword: ( rapier "spanisch type") in the museum of the of Macerata.
There are Kopis and Machaira.
120 km da Perugia
