Zona Podere Due Forni - Archaeological site


The "Due Forni" farm brought to light important data and findings which belonged to an urban-rustic villa of the I/II century B.C.

It was probably very prestigious both at an architectural level and for its comforts: there were, for instance, some heated rooms.

The exceptionality of the place, though, is given by the discovery of a big rectangular basin in hydro-cement with two small basins on the sides.
It is a handicraft structure without comparison face to other findings in the national territory.

The most reliable hypothesis presently is that it was used for fish breeding.
