‘Towards the Etruscan city-stage’ looks at what we know about the highly urbanized form of the Etruscans’ living environment. Urbanization is the characteristic which has defined the Etruscans. It is also associated with the arrival of the Greeks. Different groups of the era impacted on each other in their development patterns. The variability of the settlement patterns of the era is coupled with an increasingly differentiated material culture. To what extent was this a collective process? There are signs of imports and trade movements. A major site which connects the area is Frattesina, which indicates the international opportunities, potential markets, and economic interactions that helped transform early Iron Age Etruria.
