A natural hollow in the landscape constituted the heart of sacred institutionalised rituals and ceremonies of a remarkable nature. Located beside this space, the remains of a child were discovered having died from a “Sacred Disease” which was actually epilepsy. The ancient priests believed that the child had the power to communicate with the divinities.

Due to these kinds of evidence unearthed in the mother city of the Etruscan civiltion, archaeologists and scholars have been able to formulate theories as to how the Etruscans worshipped from the dawn of their civiltion up to the threshold of Romanization.
