Etruscan Ruins of Marzabotto Image Album Kalpana Image Archives - Emilia Romagna Region, Italy

Marzabotto is a small town in the foothills of Apenine mountains, about 30 km to the south of Bologna. Close to the town, ruins of a pre-roman Etruscan town (acropolis) with a connected necropolis (cemetry) were discovered here in early twentieth century. There is an Ethruscan museum near the ruins.

Etruscans probably came of Anatolia region, in eastern part of modern Turkey. They settled in central part of Italy, especially between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna in 7-8 century BC. They used to cremate their dead and then make tombs for the ashes. Their tombs with round stones on the top are curious. Their language has not been deciphered fully. Materials from their tombs showing their every day things can be seen in archeological museum of Bologna.

They were the early settlers of Bologna and called it Felsina. Some Etruscan names are still in use. Images on this page are from a visit to Marzabotto in 2012.
