This small village is plunged in natural scenery where the beauties of a multicoloured landscape reign undisputed. It keeps memory of a past whose roots are lost in time. Near the cemetery of Atella, some finds were excavated, such as fragments of long bones and a long tusk. They show the presence of pre-historical settlements in the area.

A historical reconstruction states that, probably around 650-550,000 years ago, this place was inhabited by groups of Homo erectus that used to hunt aurochs, elephants, and so on with stone weapons.
