Fistomba Park – The park among the ‘tombs of the happy’

0
Parco Fistomba is a place of ancient origin whose name, according to chronicles, derives from 'felicium tumba', or 'tomb of the happy'. In fact, in Roman times, this area was a burial ground, a sort of popular cemetery, where a bishop named Felice is said to have built a church and a monastery where he was later buried. From then on, the place was called 'Felicis Tumba', the tomb of Felix. The plural "felicium" is said to be explained by the fact that it was probably here that those whom Christians called "happy and blessed", people who had distinguished themselves in life by their upright and impeccable behaviour, were buried.
