Gendered Adornment and Dress Soundscape in Etruscan Dance

Audrey Gouy

The aim of this article is to study the communicative potential of adornment in Etruria. The belts, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and diadems added to the male and female body highlighted, shaped and performed a gender, an identity and a status. But they also could blur, transform and reverse gender, identity and status, especially in the context of ritual performances. Consequently, the ritual use and the symbolic function of adornment in various types of performances will also be explored. The analysis is based on Central Etruria visual evidences of dance from 6th and 5th centuries BCE.
