The first great Tuscia’s settlers, the Etruscans, have profoundly marked the territory with their settlements and the roads carved in the tuff (even called “tagliate”). The first big city founded was Tarquinia, a big trade and mercantile center. Tuscia’s name and boundaries were defined by Romans who conquered the territory held from Etruscans (even named Tusci); through the centuries Tuscia attained a great importance due to the affirmation of the “Via Francigena” which drove the pilgrims to Rome.
