The Hildebrand Tomb was discovered in 1924 by one of the Rosi brothers, and since then carefully studied in detail by Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli. Dating back to the III-II century. B.C. It is considered in its particularity the most important monument of the necropolis Sovana not only, but also of the whole Etruria.
The name has no connection, of course, the great Pontiff, but not knowing anything about the character he had built such an imposing and “bizarre” grave, the discoverers wanted to give the name of the most famous citizen of Sovana.
