Where the remains of the Ancient City Walls are, there lie the monuments, churches and the testimonies of antique civilizations; walking through the streets of the historical centre, the antique Greek-Roman structure is still legible, memory represented vividly in via Pietà, via S. Cesareo, via Padre Reginaldo Giuliani and via Tasso.
