Summary (English)

  • The site is situated on an ample, naturally-protected rise, in a position dominating the surrounding plain and ancient road. Material was recovered that documents Final Bronze Age occupation, while traces of Iron Age activity are less certain. The permanent settlement dates from the period of Romanization (2nd century B.C.) with the dwellings on the hill and a necropolis at its feet. In the late antique-early medieval period between the 5th and 6th centuries, the site was enlarged to become a castrum, with a baptistery (dedicated to St. Peter) and residential area. Traces of Roman houses with overlying late-antique buildings and early medieval occupation emerged near the ex-church of St. Peter. This was also the site of a castle in the late medieval period and of a parish church, attested by documents of 1094. At present the remains of the ancient church, which are being incorporated into a museum, are visible. (Luca Villa)
