The ancient Roman Theatre of Falerone

Along the Tenna river, in the village of Piane di Falerone (small but lively village in the municipality of Falerone) there is another city of the ancient Rome, the Falerium Picenus.

The theater, 50 feet in diameter, could accommodate about 1.600 people, is erected for the three orders, the last of which, unfortunately, was destroyed.  Along the outer perimeter of the amphitheater are still visible the stems of 22 columns once covered in marble.

Our local history is, however, more ancient than Romans, it began around the 9th century b.C. with the Picenes. According to the greek historian Strabo (that lived most part of his life in Rome), at the beginning of the Iron age the Picenes moved in our lands and the whole Marches from the Sabina Region, that nowadays is the province of Rieti. The confirmation of this fact comes from the finding in 1973 of the Penne S. Andrea epigraphs written in picene language, in which the Picenes define themselves SAFINUS SAFINAS TUTAS, that is Sabines of the Sabine community. During that migration, tells Strabo, they were led by a bird sacred to the god Mars: the woodpecker, that is PICUS, thus Picenes.
