The ETRUSCANS - who were they and why do they matter?
Still shrouded in an aura of mystery, the Etruscans ruled the central Italian peninsula for five centuries before the advent of the Romans, whose culture they permeated and enriched.
Together we will discuss their origins, their society and their customs to better understand a population that through the centuries has influenced the western world but that still today remains largely unknown to many outside of Italy.
