I remember reading a story about how after Troy was sacked the remnants migrated to Italy. What do Y'all think about this?

It is part of the Myth surrounding the founding of Rome:


According to Virgil's Aeneid, the defeated army of Troy crossed the Mediterranean Sea on the orders of prince Aeneas, reaching the Latin coast. Here they were considered to have landed in an area between modern Anzio and Fiumicino, southwest of Rome. Most commonly it is supposed that they landed at Laurentum (or Larentum); other versions say that they landed at Lavinium, a place named for Latinus' daughter Lavinia.

Troy is about 400 km north of the villages near izmir whom have the closest genetic resemblance to the etruscans.

Personally im betting on that the etruscans were of turkish origin. Ive also heared allot about someone who knew ancient turkish and thus could read etruscan. Not sure about that though.

it is important to remember that there is as much serious scholoarship saying that Troy is not Troy as there is saying Troy is Troy. The Troy is Troy arm is currently funded by mercedes and are very aggressive [even to the point of being successfully sued in Germany].

there is a growing interest in Cornesti [20km north of Timisoara Romania] which was rediscovered in 2005 and is by far the largest earthwork in Europe dated to the bronze age. interest has especially grown as the conclusions of the Danube Lawsuit [Hungary sues Slovakia at the Hague] become more well known [a sea filled the Carpathian Basin at the end of the last ice age].

Nahhhh way of
(no ofense though). According to whom? Schliemann ? There is no way etruscans are of turkish origine. Troy were part of the same race as the dardans, illyrians... therefore pelasgians. Nothing in comon with hittites.
Have you ever checked which one is the only language avalaible today that can help understand etruscian? I can give you an insight: Is albanian, the only one dervied from illyrian/pelasgian. The only one avalaible to explain etruscian. If you want to know more I can suggest you this authors (hard to find though): Giuseppe Catapano, Nermin Vlora Falaski, Pukevil, George Grote, Robert D'Angely etc. Has been done a titanic work to make greeks look as the inventors of everything.. but keep in mind, today greeks have nothing in common with ancient ones, not even the language. Be open minded and research. Maybe Ventri one day will resurect and tell the whole world how he died and why. Linear B greek? pffff what a joke


p.s. I'm done with this thread !!!
