TUSCANY – Dolce Vita in an Old Land

Volterra, Tuscany, Italy

“Volterra – Town of Twilight VI” was featured in the group Italy and all Things Italian

Volterra is an important location in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. In the books, Volterra is home to the Volturi, a coven of powerful and ancient vampires. (The movie, however, was shot in Montepulciano.)

From Wikipedia

Volterra, known to the ancient Etruscans as Velathri, to the Romans as Volaterrae, is a town and comune in the Tuscany region of Italy.

The town was a Neolithic settlement and an important Etruscan center (Velathri or Felathri) with an original civilization; it became a municipium in the Roman Age. The city was a bishop’s residence in the 5th century and its episcopal power was affirmed during the 12th century. With the decline of the episcopate, Volterra became a place of interest of the Florentines, whose forces conquered Volterra. Florentine rule was not always popular, and opposition occasionally broke into rebellion. These rebellions were defeated by Florence.

When the Florentine Republic fell in 1530, Volterra came under the control of the Medici family and later followed the history of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
