Etruscans. The dawn of Rome It was inaugurated on August 26 at the MARQ. Although its completion was scheduled for December 12, 2021, thanks to the success and the high number of visitors has been extended until March 20, 2022. The exhibition, curated by Giuseppina Carlotta Cianferoni, includes a total of 150 original pieces of ancient Etruria from the National Archaeological Museum in Florence and the Guarnacci Etruscan Museum in Volterra, in Tuscany. With only two replicas: l’Ombra della Sera and the famous Liver of Piacenza.
The Etruscan legacy on display invites us to reflect on this fascinating culture, its sophistication and richness, due to the agricultural prosperity of the area, the discovery of metallurgical resources on the Tyrrhenian coast, its invaluable cultural and technological heritage, its thriving trade and of course, its social organization, so questioned by Greeks and Latins. A careful and pampered exhibition design envelops us in different environments to unravel aspects as relevant as economy, commerce, society and with it the role of women and the heyday of the Etruscan princes, as well as all aspects related to religion, its multitude of deities and funeral rituals.
Etruscans, the dawn of Rome was born from the collaboration between the Provincial Council of Alicante, the Foundation of the Valencian Community MARQ and the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Alicante (MARQ) con some of the most important cultural institutions in Italy such as the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Provincia di Pisa e Livorno.
The exhibition is accessible and inclusive for all audiences since it has, among other resources, augmentative and alternative communication systems such as typhlotechnological models, 3D replicas, texts in Braille, interpreter points in Spanish Sign Language, easy reading, etc.
