The tale of Romulus and Remus is a colorful myth, but in this lesson you will learn about the real founding of Rome. You will learn how Rome's location on the Italian Peninsula brought it in contact with two neighboring groups. Interaction with these groups, the Etruscan and the Greeks, influenced Roman culture in the fields of engineering sports, architecture, writing, art, and religion.
Greek influence of architecture on the Roman civilization
As Rome grew, Roman culture was greatly influenced by two of Rome's neighbors, the Etruscans and the Greeks. The Romans borrowed many ideas and skills from these two groups, beginning with the Etruscans. The Etruscans had dominatedEtruria, a land just north of Rome. They built some city-states and conquered others.

Etruscan spectators also enjoyed watching chariot races. The charioteers, or drivers, were strapped to their chariots. If a chariot overturned, they could be dragged under the chariot's wheels or trampled by the horses. These fierce competitions often resulted in injury or death.
The Romans used Greek designs in their own public buildings. Eventually, they learned to use concrete to create even larger structures, such as the Pantheon in Rome.
Greek pottery was valued throughout the Mediterranean world for its usefulness and beauty. Greek potters created large clay vessels for storing food, water, and wine. They often painted black figures on the red clay. Some of their designs showed pictures of gods and heroes, while others illustrated people in their daily lives. The Romans eagerly brought the work of Greek potters into their homes. Roman artists imitated the technique, but developed their own style.
