The Etruscan heartland was delimited by the River Arno to the north and the Tiber to the south and east. Its culture developed from an earlier one, called Villanovan, and was enriched by a variety of influences, notably Phoenician, Greek, and Roman. By the early third century B.C., Rome effectively controlled most of the Etruscan territory.
The Etruscans were consummate metalworkers, as indicated by their jewelry and bronzes, most notably the ceremonial chariot from Monteleone. Another medium in which they excelled was carved amber. Their accomplished craftsmanship and cultural complexity is well illustrated in this gallery within the Leon Levy and Shelby White Galleries.
