The first traces of occupation date back to the Neolithic period (around 3 000 BC).The first settlers lived in fabric or leather tents with wooden frames.
Scrapers, bowl fragments, Etruscan amphorae shards etc. found during the excavations, testify to their presence.
At the end of the fourth century BC Gauls, called Volscians (a tribe from the orient), settled and created a true walled city. It was surrounded by strong ramparts and towers, which can still be seen in part, and covered a total area of 5.6 hectares.
