NECROPOLIS OF CERVETERI
CERVETERI (RM )
Via degli Inferi is the ancient road, sacred to the Etruscans, which linked the Etruscan city of Caere (now Cerveteri) to the immense area that housed the tombs of their loved ones. A way of connection and pain, the last journey of the dead who were then buried in what is now called the Necropolis of Banditaccia, one of the largest necropolises in the ancient world that has come down to us, a Unesco world heritage site: a real city, urbanistically planned, divided into blocks, neighborhoods, condominiums, a real "village" of tombs designed to house the "soul" of the deceased for eternity.
We will follow surrounded by fields, woods and ditches, the mysterious and poignant footsteps (or sometimes the footprints of the wagon wheels) of the Etruscans starting from the ancient city of Caere with its imposing defensive walls and looking for the sacred and deep Etruscan cut with the numerous tombs that flank it, full of details and surprises, and reach the immense monumental burial ground of the Banditaccia.
