  Etruria - LoveToKnow 1911
ETRURIA, an ancient district of Italy, the extent of which varied considerably, and, especially in the earliest periods, is very difficult to define (see section Language).
The authentic history of Etruria is very meagre, and consists mainly in the story of its relations with Carthage, Greece and Rome.
In 474 the Etruscan fleet was destroyed by Hiero I. of Syracuse; Etruria Circumpadana was occupied by the Gauls, the Campanian cities by the Samnites, who took Capua (see Campania) in 423, and in 396, after a ten years' siege, Veii fell to the Romans.

 Stipula - Etruria
The extraordinary lushness of the Etruscan countryside also inspires the pen's finishing touches, which are characterized by a leaf motif, symbol of the continuance of life and the alternation of the seasons.
Near the lip, between two Sterling silver rings, the pen cap is adorned with a vermeil strip of feuille aigue decoration in geometric, highly stylized forms in accordance with the canons of the Florentine jewelers' style.
Etruria is now also available as a cap roller, with a special metal point with vertical chasing to exalt its luster and create a play of silver and gold tones that echoes the colors of the nib of the fountain pen version.

 Etruria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Etruria — usually referred to in Greek and Latin source texts as Tyrrhenia — was a region of Central Italy, located in an area that covered part of what now are Tuscany, Latium, Emilia-Romagna and Umbria.
The ancient inhabitants of Etruria are labelled Etruscans and their complex culture was centered on numerous city-states that rose during the Villanovan period in the ninth century BC and were very powerful during the Orientalizing and Archaic periods.
The classical name Etruria was revived in the early 19th century, applied to the Kingdom of Etruria, an ephemeral creation of Napoleon I of France in Tuscany which existed from 1801 to 1807.

 Stipula Etruria Demonstrator
Something about the Etruria captured my enduring affection when the pen was introduced in its original brown/gold celluloid several years ago.
Based on the larger-sized Etruria (my original celluloid Etruria is the smaller model, better for my mid-sized hands), it gave me a tish of concern originally because I was afraid it might be too big for me to use comfortably.
But it's been fine; I can't swear to it, because I don't have the big Etruria in celluloid to compare it with, but I think it may be a little bit lighter, which helps make up for the larger-sized section and barrel length.

 Etruria et Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus Maior
I note that Etruria put their inductrial machine at their disposal, but did not supply combatant men as it had previously done since the outbreak of the Second Punic War.
This amply demonstrates 2 things: not only that the workshops of the several cities of the dodecapoli were flourishing but further, that they possessed the technology to satisfy the demands made of the ships by a (then) modern naval war.
Etruria, in my opinion, answered to the demand for Scipio because it saw a good opportunity to demonstrate to Rome and to its Italic allies that its industrial arsenal were still strong, modern, efficient, technologically advanced and quick to respond.
