In time, the Romans had learned how to build cities by the Black people, now there is competition for power and territory. Wars rage, but the Etruscan cities fight alone, and the Romans can simply attack and annex each individual city; divide and conquer was the order of the day. The disunity is further illustrated, by the fact that the Romans concluded treaties with individual Etruscan city/states, rather than the whole.

But the Etruscans reemerged as a local power during 800 - 700 B.C, spreading their trade to Corsica, Sardinia and Iberia and creating a powerful navy to guard their interests. The Phoenicians and Etruscans became trading partners and rivals, exchanging goods and opportunistic raids with each other. However the situation changed after the "Whites" of Greece, had consolidated power and began to expand into the Western Mediterranean at about 750 B.C.}

In approximately 600 B.C, the Etruscans attacked and occupied the area of Latium and settled themselves in the city of Rome, from here the influence of Etruscan civilization and art made itself felt in the entire Latin sphere.

But their expansion soon collided with that of the Greeks, especially in the sixth century B.C, when Phoceans (Greeks in Italy) founded colonies along the coast of France, Catalonia and Corsica. This led the Etruscans to ally themselves with the Carthaginians (Phoenicians), whose interests also collided with the Greeks.

{Note: The Phoenicians had planted trading posts in Africa, Sicily, Sardinia and Iberia during 1100-900 B.C. while creating their trading monopoly. They had a relatively free hand during that period as other civilizations were suffering from a "      "Dark Age" during that period because of the invasion of White from Eurasia.
