Archaeological Area of Roselle (km 15) Print E-mail

The archaeological area of Roselle is now one of the most interesting archaeological areas of Italy, as it contains the remains of the ancient city of Roselle founded by the Etruscans in the seventh century BC.

Important for fishing and trade, with other cities of the interior, Roselle became one of the most important Etruscan cities in the area. In 294 BC it was invaded by the Romans, that enlarged and embellished the city with spas, villas and an amphitheater among the best preserved of the area. In the sixth century, Roselle was invaded by barbarians and lost its primacy, then after the fall of Maremma, that in the Middle Ages became a lagoon and then a plain unhealthy, Roselle was virtually abandoned until the reclamation area at the end of 700.

But in the '50s came to light in its entirety by a long series of excavations.
