Photographer's Note

Locality of Spoleto, the origin of the name is unknown, some families may be connected to the Roman era. Of this period are not at present known monumental traces. There are reports of some inscriptions, but no houses or settlements inhabited. One of these stones is visible in S. John, where other Roman elements are used in the construction of the building. Roman tombs lined the street, called "The Fraschetta", which combines with Eggi Bazzano, and at the end of the last century and the beginning of this there were found several sarcophagi, all anepigrafi, part clay, part of local limestone. Other emergencies are in town from Roman times Collemarozzo, and Sordini identified the discharge of a furnace of that time along the "Pit of Cortaccione". In the same period was discovered a monumental presence, for which it was thought to a villa, in S. Beroto, the place where the ancient Spoleto legendary place in the monastery where the abbot of the same name lived.
