Topic: Cerveteri


In the News (Tue 21 May 19)

  
  Caisra (Roman Caere or modern Cerveteri)
The earliest major settlements at Cerveteri date from between the 9th and 8th centuries BCE and are characteristic of the Villanovan period.
The Necropoli of Cerveteri include the Banditaccia, Sorbo, Cava della Pozzolana, Groppie di San Antonio and Monte Abetone.
From the piazza in Cerveteri, allow about 30 minutes (hilly) walk to the Banditaccia necropolis, or there is a tourist bus which leaves infrequently.

The ancient Caere was one of the most populated centres of the entire civilized world, also as a cultural and commercial pole able to contest, in alliance with Carthage, the control of the Tyrrhenian sea to the Greeks.
The Banditaccia monumental complex, the most important of the Cerveteri necropolis, extending for more than 90 hectares, is one of the most fascinating archaeological landscapes of the world and surely deserves a visit.
The main interest is given by the town-planning map of the city of the dead, clearly reflecting the one of the alive town.

In the year 350 BC the city finally fell under Rome.The castle is the center of medieval Cerveteri and includes part of the Etruscan walls of the IV century BC.
The castle was donated to the government by the Ruspali family to host the national museum of Cerveteri, here the burial garments of the tombs are displayed on two floors.

 John B. Mors - Sculptures - Works in Progress - Chimneys - Cerveteri / Mausoleum
Cerveteri is the fifth of a series of sculptures referred to as "Chimneys".
The sculpture was originally conceived as a reference to the Etruscan tumuli at Cerveteri.
Luckily I was able to find an image of a Cerveteri tomb more in keeping my original concept, and the sculpture reverted to its original concept.

 Cerveteri Etruscan Necropolis: How to Get There from Rome
The modern town of Cerveteri is nothing particularly special; there's a charming central piazza where you'll find the main municipal building and the museum.
The bus stop in Cerveteri is handy for the museum and the old part of town.
There are also some nice places to eat in town; a good idea is to arrive before lunch, eat in Cerveteri at one of the restaurants near the bus stop, then spend the afternoon at the ruins, before returning to Rome.

This is a reference to the nearby town known today as Cerveteri, one of Italy's great Etruscan cities, whose origins could date from as far back as the 9th century B.C. Of course, the Etruscan town has long since faded, but not the Necropolis of Cerveteri (tel.
The effect is eerie; Cerveteri is often called a "city of the dead." When you go beneath some of the mounds, you'll discover the most striking feature: The tombs are like rooms in Etruscan homes.
Once you're at Cerveteri, it's a 2km (1 1/4-mile) walk to the necropolis; follow the signs pointing the way.

 Museo Gregoriano Etrusco II
A variety of different elements come together in the composition of this vase, made of the finest bucchero from Cerveteri, and with incised decoration.
The ancient tradition, taken up in the Italo-Geometric pottery of forming handles or the knobs of lids in the shape of animals here is allied with the Geometric tradition of the askos, an animal skin made into a water container and modeled as a quadruped or a bird.
The human figure on the body of the vase, who holds in his extended hands the horses' harness, as well as the circular ornament on the side of the vase suggest the idea of a fantastic chariot whose body is fused with that of the two horses.

On our way from Tarquinia to Cerveteri we once again enjoyed the marvelous countryside of Tuscany with hills and mountaintops in every direction, all crowned with castles or other old fortifications.
At Cerveteri is situated another unique archeological site: a necropolis (city of the dead) with hundreds, perhaps thousands of tombs.
As in Tarquinia, the burial chambers are under the ground and cut out in the soft tuff, but above ground level the tombs are circular and rounded with a dome of soil much like the Danish dolmens or passage graves, miniatures of the surrounding mountaintops.
