Cities of the Etruscans

Edited by Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Lisa C. Pieraccini

What defines an Etruscan city? How did Etruscan cities arise, and what can they tell us about urbanism in ancient Italy? How did each Etruscan city create its own identity, and how did they differ from each other? This series uses an interdisciplinary approach grounded in the latest research in order to reveal the social, religious, economic, architectural, artistic, and civic fabric of each Etruscan city. This perspective highlights the unique Etruscan contribution to ancient Italy without relying on previous methodologies that looked to Greece or Rome to explain Etruscan customs, culture, and traditions.
