Visitors can discover the mysterious Etruscan people on the island of Elba from July to October to find out how the Etruscans lived.

If it is true that they wrote from right to left and then backwards, in alternating lines. If their cuisine was very different from ours. If it is true that their women were emancipated. What were their hobbies, games, music? Were they really mining talents capable of masterfully working metals?

Etruscan recipes and food tasting are planned 

To answer all these and many other questions Elba, the island of the Etruscans, celebrates its bond with the mysterious Mediterranean people with a year of events dedicated to Etruscan culture. The Etruscan Elba programme also features Etruscan recipes, food tastings, historical re-enactments, and visitors can try their hand at metallurgical technique.

“Visitors can try things first hand”

"Etruscan Elba is a new and wonderful opportunity to show the thousand faces of our island - underlines Niccolò Censi, a coordinator at Visit Elba. - Visit Elba will allow visitors to experience Elba authentically and try things out first hand.”

Precious Etruscan metals on display 

Mediterranean routes between Etruria and the East opened on 1 July and will continue until Sunday 2 October 2022. The exhibition - the main attraction is the Iron and Gold exhibition - showcases a selection of precious materials from the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, originally from the necropolises of mining Etruria.

Wine tours and conferences 

The banquet was a central moment in Etruscan social life, and the programme includes presentations of recipe collections and wine tours featuring the history of Etruscan wine. Many conferences are scheduled focusing on the many known and lesser-known aspects of the Etruscan civilization.
