It’s been seven years since excavations had begun in this site, 75 km far from Rome. The fortified settlement was built by Romans in the 3rd century b.C. on a hillside by the sea, on the ruins of a former Etruscan village, which controlled the landing place. The excavations led to the discovery of the urban walls, the barracks, and the theatre, and it has been demonstrated that the area was populated since the 2nd millennium b.C.
Today the ancient fisheries are submerged and cover a 200 mt long area: these buildings are the biggest and eldest of their kind ever discovered.
