Towns & Places



Seemingly, in the past, on the hill dominating the Tenna river and the basin of the Ete Morto, where Rapagnano is located today, there was a temple dedicated to the God Janus. The name Ripa di Giano stems from this temple, and the numerous pre-Roman and Roman finds (amphorae, earthenware and bronze vases, spears, shields and helmets) unearthed in the late 19th century in San Triburzio confirm the quotations Pliny left with reference to this area.
