Celleno Antica - Celleno (VT)

History
Celleno Antica rises 350 meters high and about 1.5 km from the new center. Perched on a tuff spur, it rises between two streams that gradually flow towards the Tiber River. The tuff base where the village rests is subject to a slow and progressive erosion that is seriously endangering its very stability.
Celleno Antica is destined to the same fate that happened to other villages in Tuscia such as Civita di Bagnoregio, fortunately saved from decay thanks to a large shoring work.
Celleno's origins are lost in legend: Dionysus of Halicarnassus, in his writings, claims that the city was founded would have been founded by Italo descendant of Enotro, in memory of his daughter Cilenia, many years before the siege of Troy. Celenus, in Greek mythology, was one of the three harpies daughters of Taumante and Electra.
Certain data on the human presence in Celleno are provided by some findings that testify the presence of a small town on the hill starting from the seventh century BC.
