  • It is a very well maintain area with historical sites before the romans and unique botanic species. I do advice to go for lunch to "Il Ragno Rosso" restaurant.  more »
  • The landscape of this area is typical of the Agro Falisco, modeled from the end of the eruptive activity of tertiary volcanic complex Cimino-Vicano. A conformation that as a result of modellatrici activity of weathering on lava rocks, expresses all its peculiarities through deep and spectacular canyons. Here, from the 9TH-8th century BC, there developed one of the most mysterious italic peoples, the Falisci, and many historians that locate in this area what was one of their most important centers: Fescennia. To strengthen this hypothesis, already quite supported by important archaeological sites, has been added in the last few years the discovery-during the construction of a building--what might have been the main shrine of the ancient city. Although, therefore, is not yet possible to say with certainty that the current Corchiano matches the ancient Fescennia, there is no doubt that this Center has played an important strategic role within the framework of the Agro Falisco due to its location as a crossroads between the tip and the Tiber Valley. The first settlement is traced back to the 8th century b.c., the period to which the pit and pit graves found in the locality of Caprigliano. Because of the systematic reuse of materials the remains of the town are scarce, but enough to suggest that he had to rise on the plateau of the Walloon, naturally defended on three sides by two rivers-the Fosso delle Pastine and Rio Fratta-and vallo on fourth. To be able to have a more complete picture about what that distant past has left us, we need to get away for a couple of kilometres north, direction Vignanello, and immediately after the bridge of the now disused railway line Orte-Civitavecchia, turn right and follow the signs to the WWF oasis of Pian Sant'Angelo. Pian Sant'Angelo becomes a natural monument in 2000, but since 1985, thanks to the will of the family farm which owns Pratesi, delimits the boundaries, its conduct had been entrusted by the region to the WWF Lazio. Since then no more forest cuts, and a whole series of measures that have allowed the return in this ecological island of the Black Stork (Ciconia nigra), Europe's rarest lanner Falcon (Falco biarmicus feldeggi), who has found his most congenial habitat, and protection of a large colony of crayfish (Austropotamobius pallibes); It seems that even the now-rare Wildcat (Felix silvestris) is between these precipices. The visit to the OASIS is an exciting experience that, strictly organic cropland in costeggianti paths, with immersion in the dense undergrowth reveals to the visitor an ecosystem strikingly similar to what they saw millennia ago the Falisci. Wherever you may notice the footsteps of countless inhabitants of the deep gorge into which flows the ditch Merlesi, real decumanus around which the ecosystem. All of a sudden that's caught an impressive wall of which bars the waterway: the aqueduct Bridge of the bridge. A notable example of hydraulic engineering, the work is made with blocks of Tuff and consists of two adjacent walls on which flows the river-bed of the aqueduct. The structure has long been regarded as one of the greatest works of Roman engineering. However, in recent years, whether that other archaeological sites of the area have been dated 3rd-2nd centuries BC, a period that, without precluding the creation of complex ai Falisci, is however at a later stage to the Roman conquest of Agro (a limes identified by destroying Faleri Veteres in 241 BC). It is at least curious that rather than opt for a system of arches, has opted for a "full" undertaking the hard work of excavation of the gallery that still allows the ditch to drain out. The only possible answer is that the aqueduct to serve even as a dam. Lifts the Gorge to reach the so-called "Tomb of the leader" (3rd-2nd century BC), one of the most important examples of faliscan funerary architecture. In the same area there are several others, including the "Tomb of the masks", so named for the figures carved on the capital of the Central column. These tombs have façade in Tuscan columns and sottofacciata features a vestibule porch: a typology of the tomb which finds numerous compare to Norchia, revealing Etruscan cultural contamination on the contenders. By 2011, thanks to the contribution of the Gruppo Archeologico Romano, the tombs so far known are gone in adding three of particular interest (box of deepening), demonstrating that this site sees anything but exhausted its archaeological treasures.

  • During the Christmas holidays we went to visit before the village of Corchiano between lanes and alleyways characteristic where the smell typical of antique and country kitchens surrounds you and where even the Christmas feels even before with the decorations on the doors of houses and small shops through the streets. In the evening we saw the manifestation of the Nativity scene, beautiful and exciting Narrator Gigi Proietti. Splendid and apt location already from the path that is to arrive on site, to revive the spectator the excitement of Christmas, when included in the ticket price fried buns and mulled wine (really bad smacked of vinegar) but you can redo the exit through the stalls a great mulled wine and local products. Tickets cost 7 € and children up to 5 years free. I recommend it
