The Villanovan Culture of northern and central Italy, between 900 and 700 BC, was ancestral to the more well known Etruscan Civilization. This film covers the main elements of that culture: the warrior elite and its attributes, the aristocracy, farm production, religiosity and funeral rites, the crafts, the tasks and the role of women, and the relationship with the other peoples of the Mediterranean. The documentary combines living history with archaeological findings preserved in regional museums to illustrate the daily life of the Villanovans.
