A true journey of the senses along the itinerary suggested by this book. A glance through the different ways Etruscans lived the ideal of beauty: this people raised the care for the body to eternal symbol of their undoubted and aristocratic charm.
Thermal places, perfumes, ointments, medicinal herbs, the cosmetic arts with their magic tools, all contribute to weaving the plot of a unique, mysterious and exciting story.
And to tell it are the very objects that comprise the toiletries of an extraordinarily modern Etruscan woman: the silent images alone, after nearly three thousand years, are still able to reflect, in the golden background of a mirror, her pure and ineffable beauty.
At the end of the presentation, it will be possible to visit the Archaeological Municipal Museum and the Bandini Museum for free.
