She’ll give an informative lecture with visuals, as she highlights the dining and drinking customs of this fascinating culture. Chef Stefano Masanti will bring the Etruscan banquet table to life by creating a dining experience using many of the same ingredients and techniques used by the ancient Etruscans.

Etruscan Food & Wine: The Banqueters of Ancient Italy.The Etruscans were an ancient civilization of people who lived in the modern-day Tuscany area of Italy, thriving from the 9th to the 1st centuries BCE. The Romans inherited many cultural and artistic traditions from the Etruscans, such as temple design, religious rituals, winemaking, and gathering friends and family for large, outdoor banquets.
