"Italy, on account of its geographical situation, has found itself since earliest times the home of many different cultures, whose origins and structures are often wrapped in mystery.
One of the most fascinating mysteries of antiquity surrounds the Etruscans. Who were they? What were the sources of their art? Massimo Carra makes the history of these ancient peoples the background to his study of their art, in particular their characteristic figurines, a selection of which can be seen in the seventy-two superb colour plates."
