Incredibly 20 th century modernist in style and design these ancient blackware 'bucchero' are exclusively an Etruscan product . The Etruscans were historically and artistically the most important of the indigenous peoples of pre Roman Italy . Modern research has now raised the status of Etruscan civilisation to a level that is demonstrably superior to the traditional picture of a poor relation of Greece and a mysterious prelude to Rome .
