The Etruscan architecture obviously has its origins in Egypt. You can see the columns on the reconstruction of this large Etruscan temple of 60 m x 60 m. This concept of columns, which we find in the famous Acropolis in Greece, was introduced in Europe by the Egyptians. We find it all the way to the United States today. The arrangement of the columns in this temple is very reminiscent of the hypostyle hall of the Holy of Holies of the African religious heritage: the temple of Imana/Amen (God) in Karnak, Egypt. The fact that Etruscans profusely colored the walls of their temples is still reminiscent of Egypt.
