The geography of Rome was very mountainous hilly. Romulus and Remus made the city after they battled their evil and corrupt father.
Etruscan influence in sports.
Romulus and Remus were born from Mars and their mother, the previous queen who got banished from the new King. Romulus and Remus were born and word reached the castle and the King sent 2 people to kill the kids in the night but the kids floated safely down the river.

Greek influence in columns
In Rome the architecture like the archway was actually a design first made by the Etruscans. They made archways and the cinuculus and Rome used those ideas and built them into their city.
Greek influence on writing, art, and religion in Rome.
The Etruscans came up with some very bloody and kind of evil sports events like slave fighting and chariot racing. In the slave fighting the winner was the one who killed the other first and the winner still died right after they won.
In the Roman Colosseum the columns were very detailed but they took it from the Greeks using the Doric, ionic, and Corinthian columns that the Greeks used in their temples and architecture.
The Greeks influence with religion was very evident since the Romans just worshiped the same gods like Hades, Poseidon, Zeus, Athena, Apollo, and more but they just changed their name and their role in the religion. The Romans used pottery like the Greeks and made columns like the Greeks did.
