At the end of this weekend spent in Tuscia, I wanted to make some final considerations.
For Tuscia is meant the province of Viterbo, which has a strong historical tradition, just think that it was the heart of the Etruscans’ region but at the same time, it is so unknown to most tourists.
It was the first time I went in this part of Italy and I was happily surprised.
One aspect that I want to highlight as an experience of this trip was meeting people living in Tuscia.
The people with whom I have been talking to (Laura, Antonello and many others) are people who love their land and their traditions and they try to convey this love to the interlocutors.
I remember with pleasure that at some point we came to the copy of the tomb of “Bella Galiana” whose original is preserved at the Civic Museum.
The bas-relief depicts the mythological episode of hunting for the Caledonio boar.
Continuing the walk, we arrived at Piazza del Gesù, rightly considered one of the most beautiful squares in Viterbo.
On one side of Jesus Square there is the church of St. Silvestro, which was the scene of such a horrible and horrible blood of being immortalized in some parts of the twelfth chant of the Hell of the Divine Comedy.
One negative aspect of Tuscia is that, unfortunately, many archaeological sites are abandoned even though there are so many volunteer associations that try to valorise it but do not have the means to realize the many projects they would like.
A weekend in Tuscia allows incurable travellers to have only a clue of what this area offers, including Etruscan and Roman finds, food and wine attractions and so on.
