Tuscana was an ancient town of Etruria, about 15 miles northwest 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 eighth century, and their valuable contents are in various European museums.
