This medieval village, until 1911, was called Anticoli Country . About the etymology of the name Anticoli , there are two versions: the first that the name derives from ” Antiquae incolae ” or ancient inhabitants of the place ; the second from ” Ante Colles ‘ because the first houses were built probably on the hill surrounded by other taller.
