The Introduction briefly outlines the history of the Tazza and its changing fortunes from a prized possession of the mightiest rulers to little known ancient artifact today. It acknowledges the gaps in evidence and the approach taken in this study—cultural history that seeks to reconstruct the locations the bowl inhabited, the characters it enthralled, and the significance it held for them.
