TOUR Description

The tour start form Civitavecchia port. After 20 minutes you will arrive to Etruscopolis, an ancient etruscan quarry dating back to IV century B..C. stretches for 15.000 mqs underground. It is an authentic artistic masterpiece which tries to defeat the strain of the centuries corroding and fading everything fleeting! It is a plunge in the past in the middle of decoreted tombs, homes, secenes of daily life, faithfully reproduced by the artist Omero “the last Etruscan”. In fact in the large museum area of ​​Etruscopolis, vases and bronzes of Etruscan inspiration are created not reproduced by OMERO who becomes in this way the continuator of the art of his ancient fathers. The artist Omero has managed to discover the secret of the archaic dough and the ancient manufacturing techniques, so that his creations are authentic even to the most sophisticated tests. For this reason, because of their strong resemblance to the original objects, they are sold with a certificate attesting its provenance like at British Museum or Metropolitan Museum in New york City. Finally Etruscopolis wants to represent a double provocation: it challenges the time which does not want to preserve and the damned men who forget! After 2,5-3,0 hours you will go in the historical city centre of Tarquinia to have a lunch in a typical “trattoria” with organic products and after you can spend time to take a look around Tarquinia!.
