TUSCANA (mod. Toscanella, q.v.), an ancient town of Etruria, about 15 M. N.E. of Tarquinii. It is hardly mentioned in ancient literature; it was a station on the road from Blera to Saturnia, a prolongation of the Via Clodia. On the hill of S. Pietro are remains of walling of the Roman period. A number of Etruscan tombs were found by the Campanari brothers in the 19th century, and their valuable contents are in various European museums.
