The name "Etruria" was the name given by the emperor August at the Legio VII, a land extended from the sea up to the Tiber river and delimited at north by the Arno river; so, it included the current Tuscany, parts of Lazio and Umbria. This land corresponded to the old Etruria, heart of the Etruscan territory.
The Etruscan heritage is still omnipresent, even after more than 2500 years.
It is not the task of "Etruria inside" to write an historical work about the Etruscans, but to stimulate the reader and to point out the tangible and intangible testimonials, still present in this area, once called Etruria. The numerous necropolis and other archaeological sites, artifacts and grave goods that are kept partly in the numerous Etruscan museums, are certainly the first and most important source of this heritage. But we have to add the immaterial bequest that influences still today large parts of the heavily by agriculture dominated southern Etruria such like the close relationship to agriculture, the inherited traditions, and the "Etruscan" character which all together dominate the country until today.
