Falisco
Explanation:
Falisco is a small area located in Civita Castellana, in the southeastern edge of the province of Viterbo (northwest of Rome), in the region of Lazio in Italy.

Falisco is a historically rich area. Its name is associated with the Falisci people, who were ethnically Italic but culturally Etruscan, and were eventually conquered by the Romans in 241 B.C. Their capital was the town of Falerii, which is now home to the famous "Museo Archeologico dell' Agro Falisco" (Archaeological Museum of the Agro Falisco).

Falisco pottery is classified as Etruscan.

Most of the information given above is gleaned from the following web site, which contains a lot of information about the Etruscans, including some information about Falisco.

Falisco


Explanation:
Without more context it's difficult to say, but the "Falisci" were a tribe or race contemporary of the Etruscans, who lived at the foot of the Cimini Mountains in Lazio I believe.
Leave it the same with a capital letter and check out web sites on Google that will tell you much more
