Corfinium

Corfinium was an ancient city founded by the Peligni people right in the center of the peninsula. We could say that Italy was born in its territory: in fact, the name “Italica” and then later “Italy” was used to refer to this city, chosen by the Italics as the capital of their league against Rome at the time of the social war in the first century B.C
