Abstract

Large and complex settlements appeared in Venetic region during 1000 and 700 bc. Are they ciies or not? Which is the way to indetify this pehnomenon ? In this paper I try to define relevant cri¬teria to describe and identify a city. These criteria work together, defining a place (where) and ways (what) of the urbansation. I considered the landscape, the settlements, public places and monumental buildings, borders: structures and shrines; furthermore: increasing economy and the transformation of value, institutional, political and religious organization, knowledge of writing, ability and power to include foreigners, tales and mythes. The archaeological data show as these criteria are well testified in Veneto between 1000 and 500 b.c., giving the representation of cities and city-state.
