Pictures image photos of the Etruscan Antiquities and artefacts of the National Archaeological Museum of Florence (Museo archeologico nazionale di Firenze). The Etruscan civilization of ancient Italy covered a territory, at its greatest extent, of roughly what is now Tuscany, western Umbria, and northern Lazio, as well as parts of what are now the Po Valley, Emilia-Romagna, south-eastern Lombardy, southern Veneto, and Campania. The earliest evidence of a culture that is identifiably Etruscan dates from about 900 BC. From around 750BC wthey were influenced by Greek culture which increased as the Greek colonies of Magna Greca settled in southern Italy and Sicily. This can be seen in Etruscan pottery which mimicked the Athenian Attica style. Even though Hellenistic influences can also be seen in Etruscan sculpture much still retains a style that probably harks back to pre Greek Etruscan styles. In turn the Romans who were sandwiched between the Etruscans to the north and the Greeks to the south were influenced by both cultures adopting many practises in architecture and styles in art and dress from both. The Etruscans were eventually incorporated into the Roman Empire. For Editorial use only, for advertising property rights please contact the museum
