Maremmma was one of the cradles of Etruscan civilization. There are numerous artefacts that document this mysterious past, showing us the splendour of their tombstone paintings, the sophistication of their ceramics and the power of their architectural skill through buildings and walls. Sovana, Vulci and Tarquinia are the symbolic places of Etruscan presence in our territory.
Sovana, the “Suana” Etruscan city par excellence, with its four necropolises was surely an important agricultural centre along the route from Vulci to the lost city of Statonia and from there to Chiusi, Cortona and finally to Arezzo.
Among the numerous tombs, we recommend visiting the following: the Ildebrana Tomb (III-II c. B.C.), the Tomb of the Alati Demons (III-II c. A.C.), the Tifone Tomb (III-II c. B.C.), and the Tomb of the Siren (III-II c. B.C.). A walk along the famous Vie Cave Etrusche, a mysterious path dug into the Tuff with walls up to 25 meters high is a must. These roads, dug by hand by the Etruscans, are full of mysterious symbols such as the Swastica, symbols of “protection from demons”, and inscriptions in the Etruscan language connected to the cult of Mother Earth.
At Vulci, the archaeological park mixes nature with archaeology: the ruins of the city and of its walls, a river and a little lake nestled in wild nature, a medieval castle that houses the Etruscan museum. A perfectly restored Etruscan road brings you to the discovery of an ancient necropolis. Here there are thousands of tombs: among the most important are the Francois Tomb, which takes its name from the archaeologist of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany who discovered it, celebrated for its paintings (today preserved in another location).
Tarquinia, with its historic centre, the large archaeological museum and famous necropolis, is one of the main centres of the whole of Etruscan civilization. In 2004, together with Cerveteri, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
140 frescoed tombs, true reproductions of Etruscan homes, represent the most important nucleus of the necropolis, which is, for this reason, the most important in the Mediterranean. At the moment, 14 tombs can be visited: the Tomb of the Hunter, of the jugglers, of the Pulcella, Cardarelli, of the Flogging, the Lotus Flowers, of the Lionesses, of the Gorgoneion, of the Charons, of the Leopards, of the Baccanti, and of Hunting and Fishing.
