In the city of Orvieto, Italy, the first Etruscan pyramid-like structure was recently found. This magnificent underground system was discovered just three years ago, depending on when you read this post.
The fact that the stairs were specifically cut within the wall gives away the fact that it was designed to imitate the Etruscan theme. That is one of their signatures right there, in case you didn’t notice.

Claudio Bizarri, the co-director of PAAO, and his associate, David B. George from St. Anselm College, discovered this after reporting that they had heard about an underwater system for over three years, but they never expected it to be this amazing.
