-------------------------------------------------------------
This paper considers the urban theme according to the particular angle of the « city of the dead » in Etruria. As it is customary in ancient times, Etruscans, except rare exception, placed graves outside cities. Does this mean that necropolises were felt as entities independent from cities? Otherwise, how did they fit into the urban composition? Comparing various Etruscan sites, we first tried to see whether it is possible to identify a constant in the situation of necropolises with regard to the urban space. Then we considered the management of space inside cemeteries.
