The Roman villa Liberta Peticia

Several excavation campaigns, begun in 1955, have brought to light a Roman villa that occupied an area of about 2500 square metres and which was located on the consular road that led from Aquileia to Trieste.

Three construction phases have been identified, the oldest of which dates back to the second half of the 1st century BCE. The black and white mosaic floor , which is clearly visible, belongs to the second phase (1st century CE). In one of the rooms a plaque (now lost) was found in which the name of the “liberta Peticia” appeared, which was linked to a well-known gens in the X Regio (the name for the region of north-eastern Italy under the Romans).
