In the 6th century BC, on a green plateau in the Reno Valley, the Etruscans founded the city of Kainua, “the new city”. The geographical position, a hub between Tyrrhenian Etruria and the Po Valley, was carefully chosen, as was the form of the city, a projection of the celestial order.



Topics covered:


  • the city’s origin
  • the relationship with the territory and other northern Etruscan groups
  • the Etruscan-Italic concept of the city as a sacred and consecrated place
  • private dwellings
  • areas and shops for production and trade
