The exhibition at the Museum of Art of two important archaeological loans related to the themes of language and writing (the Stele of Lemno and the Stele of Vicchio), was the occasion for a series of meetings organized by the Fondazione Luigi Rovati in collaboration with the National Institute of Etruscan and Italic Studies on some languages of pre-Roman Italy, delving into their use and function within different historical contexts, up to contemporary times and future perspectives of language and writing.
Ancient Italy was a mosaic of peoples: Etruscans, Celts, Veneti, Reti, Umbrians, Piceni, Latins, Osci, Apuli, Bruzi, Siculi. Each had its own language and practiced writing in a wide variety of situations and language types.
