It’s September 2018, and in the city of Como in Italy, construction work is underway that will lead to an astonishing discovery. Yes, an excavation on the site of the 19th-century Cressoni Theater reveals something incredible: a real-life treasure trove buried in the earth. And inside an ancient jug lies one particular haul that could be worth a fortune.

Welcome to Italy – a land of incredible food and beautiful landscapes as well as one of high fashion’s cultural centers. And in addition to being a draw for tourists looking for summer sun, gorgeous views and shopping to die for, the country is, of course, a wonderland if your passion involves history in any way, shape or form.
