Tuscia Archaeology

 

We want to show you not only the magnificent landscapes and its medieval history and culture, but also the essence of Tuscia: A TERRITORY WITH PERSONALITY. The territory that we are going to retrace today, among roads and footpaths, consolidated on ancient sheep-tracks , fields and farmland overloaded testimonials from various epochs, appeals to the memories of the ancient etruscan civilization, fertile germ of Roma’s myth. Etruria (or Tuscia) in the north area of Viterbo , was inhabited by a population that had reached a high level of civilization between the eighth and fith century BC.

The symbolic boundary, for the proper recognition of the Etrurian tourism, includes the strategic centers of Tarquinia, Tuscania, Canino and Vulci. In these places, for some well preserved aspects still meaningful testimonies of the Etruscan civilization are assembled, verifiable especially in the sepolcretis and in the rests of the once flourishing villages. The symbolic centre is Tarquinia, whose painted graves and the present harvests in its museum contribute to the notoriety of theEtruscans. Likewise the tombs of Tarquinia dug out of tufa stone, are famous for their frescoes all over the world. They are more than six thousand (of which 60 are wall paintings) and are pointed out by simple small houses through which you go down to the sepulchral rooms that allows to admire the wall paintings opportunely illuminated.

Another wonderful town of Etruria is Tuscania, in the province of Viterbo, located on the promontory of a tufaceus cliff, making it extremely unique and characteristic. The town itself is a true jewel of architecture and ancient constructions and provides visitors with the opportunity to appreciate its uniqueness and its profoundly interesting and ancient history. Many legends surround the foundations of the city, with the most famous being derived from Roman mythology and suggests that TUSCANIA was formed by Ascanio, son of Enea (who was himself the son of the mortal Anchise Aphrodite or Venus) on the location where he found twelve pups, in Latin: Tus.Cana.

These legends help to give the already beautiful town of Tuscania an almost magical andmysterious aura that never fails to amaze all who visit it. The Etruscans were highly civilized italic populations with trade relations with the eastern world and consequently gave an important economic and social contribution to the birth of Rome’s “Myth “ .
