Abstract

The Etruscan Art of the Orientalizing period spans from the end of the eight to the beginning of the sixth century BCE (around 740/720 - 600/580). However,the formation of what we define Orientalizing culture took much longer, and has deep roots in the latter part of the Iron Age. This is when, inside the so-called Villanovian culture, it is possible to find clear evidence of social differentiation and a well-structured hierarchy whose leaders possessed a power that manifested itself through the possession of arms and the practise of religious rites. These new aristocrats accumulate wealth from having an ample repertoire of prestigious goods, technologies, and behaviors that represent a superior social level, which manifests itself in a new lifestyle.
