Ancient Monterano


Contributor Zippomaker created this beautiful drone video of Monterano, an ancient village just outside of Rome, Italy.  Monterano was an Etruscan village, part of the Etruscan Empire which corresponded roughly to modern day Tuscany but extended further south into what is now Lazio (the region which surrounds Rome in the west-central part of the country).  The once-mighty Etruscan civilization eventually came under the domination of Rome by about the 4th century BC when the city on the Tiber River was still a republic.
