This superb town of almost 2.700 years (older than Rome), from the 3rd century B.C to the 19th century A.D. (more than 2.000 years), known with the name of NARNIA,
was internationally well known thanks to its strategic and dominating position. For these reasons, this roman colony played an important role during the Roman and Medieval Age.
In 1870, as a result of the end of the Papal States , the name “Narnia” was changed. Latin would never again be used as an official language so a result, the name became “Narni” to reflect the new vernacular slang of the time.
