The gate (3rd-2nd century B.C.) dedicated to the goddess Diana was part of the great Etruscan circle of walls that stretched for over 7 km and enclosed an area of 102 ha; the material used was local ‘panchino’, i.e., a fine-grained sandstone limestone that is soft to cut and was also used for walls, palaces and medieval paving stones that still characterise the historic centre.
