The Istituto Nazionale di Studi Etruschi ed Italici is an institution founded in 1925 for the promotion of Etruscology with its headquarters in Florence on Via Romana.

The institute was initially set up under the name Comitato Permanente per l'Etruria and renamed the Istituto di Studi Etruschi in 1932 . The renaming was due to requests made in this regard during the 1st International Etruscan Congress in Florence in 1928. With the statute of the institute passed in 1951, the official name Istituto di Studi Etruschi ed Italici was established, which in 1989 was brought back into the current form Istituto Nazionale di Studi Etruschi ed Italici .

Edition of Studi Etruschi from 1965

According to the statutes of 1989, the institute's task is to promote, strengthen and coordinate research and studies on the culture and society of the Etruscans, but also, to a lesser extent, on the other Italian peoples . The magazine Studi Etruschi has been published since 1927 . The Monumenti Etruschi , the Biblioteca di "Studi Etruschi" , the series Capua Preromana and the Atti di Convegni appear in monographic series and volumes of reports on behalf of the institute . The latter include contributions to the annual or biennial meetings of the institute members.

The institute has also taken on the patronage of the Corpus Speculorum Etruscorum - the scientific documentation of all Etruscan bronze mirrors - founded on his initiative in 1973 . It fulfills editorial tasks and monitors the restorations and drawings of the mirrors necessary for the publications. As far as possible, it also provides financial support for publication preparation.

The institute is divided into different sections:

  • Northern Etruria and Northern Italy
  • Germany
  • France
  • Austria
  • United States of America

Each of these sections has its own members and provides a responsible head of the section.
