The Etruscans were a population that lived in the ancient Italy between the ninth century B.C. and the first century B.C. in an area called Etruria, corresponding roughly to Tuscany, western Umbria and the northeastern part of Lazio.

The Etruscans or Tusci, were the most important population of Italy before the expansion of Rome, renowned in ancient times for its rich mineral resources, and known as one of the major trading powers of the Mediterranean.
