In the Etruscan civilization, the woman had a
role as outlined in that Greek or Roman society, and enjoyed more freedom
and more rights than women's contemporary.
The Etruscan women participated with full right to banquets, lying next to
her husband, (as in the tomb paintings of Tarquinia), to the great scandal
of the Greeks, who at the banquet did not admit women, if not the ether,
which in essence were prostitutes.
The Etruscans had a high regard for marriage and exclusive relationship with
your spouse, did not practice polygamy and the structure of their family
relationships was not so dissimilar and distant than it does today.
In this room we played four portraits of Etruscan women, the
famous Velia other lesser-known but always beautiful and depicted generally
on the side of their husbands.
